Winners of the 88th Academy Awards

Greetings, movie aficionados, you might have heard about or seen the telecast of the Academy Awards, when it was aired through America and Australia recently. The winners for the 88th Annual Academy Awards have finally been announced to the public. There are a few unexpected surprises in the ceremony that I would add. The best-reviewed movie 'Mad Max: Fury Road' has earned six Oscar statuettes including Best Production Design. Meanwhile the legendary actor Leonardo DiCaprio has successfully taken home the Best Actor award, and after a two year absence, animation giant PIXAR has done it again in receiving the Best Animated Feature trophy for 'Inside Out'.

I was less than enthusiastic by the results that 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' didn't achieve five Oscars that I was certain they were destined to win including; Best Visual Effects and Best Original Score for John Williams. Not to mention, a special appearance from the three original characters couldn't save them from the disappointment of losing.
