So with it all said and done Mad Max: Fury Road is the big winner with a total of 5 awards, The Revenant followed with 3 awards but considering they included Best Director, Best Actor and Best Cinematography they pulled off the big wins. One remarkable win went to Ennio Morricone at the grand age of 87 for his fantastic score for The Hateful Eight. Alicia Vikander won a well deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl, but if we’re being honest that performance should have been in the Lead Actress category. What are thoughts on the winners and losers?
