OS­CAR GOLD

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Escape Bazaar -

The 87th Academy Awards saw Bird­man and The Grand Bu­dapest Ho­tel tied for most nom­i­na­tions, with both films win­ning four awards

each. Best Pic­ture and Best Direc­tor went to the for­mer, with film­maker Ale­jan­dro González Iñár­ritu de­feat­ing Hol­ly­wood heavy­weights such as Wes An­der­son and Richard Lin­klater. Ed­die Red­mayne’s por­trayal of the leg­endary Stephen Hawk­ing in The The­ory Of Ev­ery­thing earned him

Best Ac­tor, the nom­i­nees for which also listed Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch and Michael Keaton, while Ju­lianne Moore found her­self fifth-nom­i­na­tion lucky, tak­ing home Best Actress for Still Alice.

Per­for­mances in­cluded Rita Ora’s ex­cel­lent ren­di­tion of “Grate­ful” as well as the win­ner of Best Song, “Glory” by John Leg­end, Com­mon, and the cast of Selma. But the great­est sur­prise was Lady Gaga’s trib­ute to The Sound of Mu­sic, which earned praise from Dame Julie An­drews her­self:

“It re­ally warmed my heart.”
