And The Oscar Goes To…


A starry night, slight zephyr blowing with a taste of rain and the red carpet! After a long, long wait, the 87th Academy Awards Ceremony, finally, happened at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, last night. The ceremony saw Neil Patrick Harris as the host, where, he remained pretty abashed in celebrating as well as parodying Hollywood.

2014 has, certainly, been an awesome year for movies, where all you movie-buffs got a chance to feast on flicks like Birdman and Interstellar. Needless to say, you have spent a substantial amount of time, discussing, the movies and the probability of their winning the Oscar. Well, the announcements have been made and the acceptance speeches, delivered. Those who missed the ceremony and the nitty-gritty details, sure, missed quite something!
