2015 Oscar Results

The results are in and the the big winner of the night is a tie between Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). I’m a fan of Neil Patrick Harris. There is no denying it, but there was something off about the hosting. It was pleasant and that was about it. He took digs are certain things going on in Hollywood, but every time it came off as forced. Ultimately, it wasn’t a bad hosting job, but it was completely forgettable.

Winners in Red.
