As sure as the Sun, the Moon, and most basic laws of modern physics, Leonardo DiCaprio has won the Academy Award for best actor for his work in The Revenant. Presenter Julianne Moore, who won best actress at last year's awards, waited a respectable amount of time before announcing DiCaprio's name, as if to see if she could make time itself pause briefly in anticipation.

“Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” tied for most wins, with four Academy Awards apiece during the Oscars ceremony Sunday night. “Birdman” took home awards for best picture, director, for Alejandro González Iñárritu, cinematography and original screenplay. “Budapest” won Oscars for production design, costume design, original score and hair and makeup. That left “Boyhood,” a potential front runner, with just one award, for best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette. She gave an impassioned speech advocating for gender equality, which got plenty of applause, including some whooping from Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez.
“Nina Simone said it’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times in which we live.” That line came from newly minted Oscar winner John Legend during what was arguably one of the most politically charged Academy Awards shows in recent memory.

Cate Blanchett was named Best Actress at the Oscars earlier tonight for her performance in Blue Jasmine. She beat Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, and Meryl Streep.
It's shaping up to be a big night for Alfonso Curaon's Gravity. The science fiction epic took home seven Academy Awards, including best director and best visual effects (not entirely surprising). Overall, Gravity was nominated for ten Oscars, meaning it lost three — best production design (to The Great Gatsby), best actress (to Cate Blanchett / Blue Jasmine), and big one, best picture (to 12 years a Slave). Cuaron already took home the top prize from the Director's Guild of America Awards in late January, which was a strong indicator that he'd win the Oscar for best director tonight.
