The Oscars 2016: The Results

Movie awards season came to a close with the biggest awards show of them all, The Oscars. The 88th Annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and were hosted by actor-comedian Chris Rock, who was quick to confront the race issues surrounding the ceremony with an opening monologue that seemed to garner a mixed reaction within the theatre. Walking the tight rope between acceptable and unacceptable comedy, Rock was a present force for the majority of the ceremony and certainly made his mark in a much more entertaining production than has been the case for the past few years. Lady Gaga’s ‘Best Original Song’ nominee was perhaps the standout moment of the night with an incredibly moving performance of “‘Til It Happens To You” in which the singer was joined on stage by survivors of sexual assault.
