Leonardo DiCaprio nabs Best Actor and Spotlight takes Best Picture, but Mad Max: Fury Road dominates the Oscars 2016 winners taking 6 awards.

It’s been a tumultuous year for the Academy Awards – and I don’t use that word lightly. Mostly because it’s too hard to spell. Issues of diversity and whitewashing have been given serious volume thanks to the voices of key players in the industry. Now the spotlight is shining brighter than ever on the ceremony, but more in a demand for change than an indulgence of tradition. But the chances are you’ve come here to get a lost of who win and who wasn’t so lucky. So we’ll give you just that. We’ve added in some commentary below if you’re interested – otherwise, here’s the Oscars 2016 winners list!

Well there you have it. It’s a good mix of big surprises and dead certs this year. It seems like everyone in Hollywood wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to win Best Actor, so it was pretty satisfying to see the Revenant actor take home the gold.

Another easy prediction was Inside Out taking Best Animated Feature, given how it stormed the Annie Awards. It would have been nice to see Charlie Kaufman’s Stop-Motion Anomalisa take the title given its such a different animal to the rest of it’s competition.

All the previous awards ceremonies pointed to The Revenant also being the winner of Best Picture. However, it was refreshing to see Spotlight take the award over what the Golden Globes predicted. It wasn’t a total loss for Alejandro Innaritu as the director brought home Best Director for the second year in a row.

The big winner of the night by far was Mad Max: Fury Road. Despite not winning any of the six high profile awards it still took home six awards in total, including Best Editing, Best Makeup and Hair and Best Production Design.
