Here's Your Complete 2016 Oscar Winners List From Last Night

Last night's Academy Awards ceremony started off with a bang, as Chris Rock laid into the Academy and the #Oscarsowhite debate in equal turn, giving the most blistering and entertaining opening monologue I've heard in years. It helps that Rock also isn't a song and dance man, so the Academy had to avoid one of its ongoing worst impulses this time around.

As for the actual winners? There were a few genuine surprises. Ex Machina taking the VFX prize stunned many, as it seemed like the least likely winner compared to Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Mad Max: Fury Road. Mad Max, in turn, cleaned up in the tech categories. Unfortunately that film's director, George Miller, went home empty handed, as the Academy continues its two-year long love affair with The Revenant's Alejandro G. Inarritu. Though much to my delight, the Best Picture prize went to Spotlight, a film I absolutely adored and ranked right behind Mad Max in my favorite films of the year.
