Best Picture

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) 
Directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu

I think the film dealt with that a lot - what is art and what is commerciality, and when you're an artist and when you're a whore. All the time, artists are dealing with that question, especially in film, when there's money involved in the process. That's the tragedy of film, which is an industry and an art and a tool of personal expression, and at the same time a way to entertain the masses. That's a very difficult kind of balance to navigate, especially today, with the rules of the game.

Alejandro González Iñárritu for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

My cinema is an extension of myself. A sort of life-testimony of my vital experience, with my few virtues and my numerous limitations.

Best Actor

Best Actor

Eddie Redmayne
Movie– The Theory of Everything as Stephen Hawking

Acting has done a strange thing to me, though. I often sit there, thinking, “I love this, but I wouldn’t put my daughter on the stage"

Best Actress

Best Actress

Julianne Moore
Movie – Still Alice as Dr. Alice Howland

Thank you so much. I read an article that said that winning an Oscar could lead to living five years longer. If that’s true, I’d really like to thank the Academy because my husband is younger than me," Moore joked. "There is no such thing as best actress as is evidenced by the performances of fellow nominees. I’ve been honored to be among you every step of the way.

Best Supporting Actor

Best Supporting Actor

J. K. Simmons
Movie – Whiplash as Terence Fletcher

The best compliment I ever got from the public or producers or directors is that I just totally blend in and become the character and they don't notice me and that the play happens or the movie happens or the TV show happens.

Best Supporting Actress

Best Supporting Actress

Patricia Arquette
Movie – Boyhood as Olivia Evans

It is time for us. It is time for women. …The truth is even though we sort of feel like there is, there are huge issues that are at play and really do affect women. It’s time for all the women in America, and the men who love women and all the gay people and people of color we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.

Best Adapted Screenplay

Best Adapted Screenplay

Graham Moore for The Imitation Game
Adapted from Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges

When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself. Because I felt weird and I felt different and I felt like I did not belong. And now I'm standing here. And so I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she's weird or she's different or she doesn't fit in anywhere. Yes, you do! I promise, you do! Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message along

Once upon a time there was a freckle-faced little boy who told his mom and his dad he was going to work at Walt Disney Animation. And they did something amazing: They supported him

Best Foreign Language Film

Best Foreign Language Film

Ida (Poland) in Polish

Director– Paweł Pawlikowski

We made a film about the need for silence, withdrawal from the world and contemplation, and here we are at this happy center of noise and attention.

Best Original Score

Best Original Score

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Composer – Alexandre Desplat

Each year there are five scores that are nominated. You do the best work that you can. You think about the music for the film you’re working now, not if you’re going to get a nomination or not. Sadly, I’m not the only composer in the world

"Glory" from Selma – Music and Lyric by John Legend and Common

'Selma' is now, because the struggle for justice is right now," he said, adding, "There are more black men under correctional control today than there were under slavery in 1850

Thank you to the Academy. First of all, to Mr. Clint Eastwood, it’s always been an honor and a privilege to work with you. You are the best. To Rob Lorenz, Bradley Cooper and the entire Malpaso team, thank you for your inspiration and your support. To Kim Wong and the Warner Bros. family, to my family at home, Debbie, Blu, Kevin and Hailey, thank you, I love you. And to our incredible sound team.

Best Cinematography

Best Cinematography

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Cinematographer – Emmanuel Lubezki

At first I told him I wasn’t interested, it sounded like a nightmare! But then he talked about the characters and why it had to be one shot. He captivated me. It was complex and hard; there’s no book on how to do it, but I have to say that the style was because Alejandaro is a strong, curious artist. Birdman was the hardest movie I worked on.
