Last night was a historical one in Hollywood as some of the world’s finest actors and contributors to the movie industry were celebrated.
It’s always lovely to see great talents rewarded and I couldn’t help but follow the event keenly.
A big congratulations to everyone who picked up awards and all the nominees too. They are all winners.
British actor Eddie Redmayne won the best actor award for The Theory of Everything, while Julianne Moore picked up best actress for Still Alice. Dark comedy Birdman won best film and best director for Mexican film-maker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Another highlight of the event was when John Legend and Common brought the house to tears with their rendition of best song winner “Glory,” from the film “Selma.” Images from the Selma-to-Montgomery march and of march leader Martin Luther King, Jr. played out behind them, as a growing chorus joined the stage. By the time the powerful performance was over, the audience was out of their seats applauding and “Selma” lead David Oyelowo had tears streaming down his face. It was indeed memorable to watch.

And let’s not forget the fashion! There were some really stunning outfits on the red carpet. But the interesting thing about fashion is that its not only about wearing a great outfit, its also about how you carry yourself in it.
It was really hard to choose but here are my top 5 picks from the red carpet:
The good thing about awards such as this is that it reminds us that talent can be celebrated. There were some great winners last year, and this year, awesome winners too. Depending on the movie, the production team, the time and other factors, people shine at their own time so its important to give them a chance to become the best they can be.
What do you think about the award winners and the ceremony?
