Every year, the Academy Awards celebrates Hollywood’s finest by honoring the industry’s greatest actors and moviemakers. This year’s Oscars went off without a hitch, wowing its audience with crazy song-and-dance numbers and Neil Patrick Harris’s unfailing wit.
When the winners for each category were announced, their heartfelt speeches immediately made the night a more memorable one. Best Supporting Actress Patricia Arquette impressed everyone with her call for wage equality; Best Actor Eddie Redmayne dedicated his award to ALS patients; Best Actress Julianne Moore made everyone laugh with her comic take on winning an Oscar; and Birdman Director Alejandro González Iñárritu commented on having Mexican directors win twice in a row.
The Oscars may have come and gone, but no one will forget how it made Hollywood history yet again.
