The 88th Academy Awards were a wonderful spectacle, as usual! Chris Rock didn’t shy away from any of the recent controversy surrounding the awards & of course, all the stars looked great!

Now, onto the best part – THE WINNERS!

As you know, we focused on 3 major categories at the awards:

Best Picture

  • Bridge of Spies
  • Brooklyn
  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Room
  • Spotlight
  • The Big Short
  • The Martian
  • The Revenant

Best Actor in a Leading Role

  • Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
  • Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl
  • Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
  • Matt Damon, The Martian
  • Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs

Best Actress in a Leading Role

  • Brie Larson, Room
  • Cate Blanchett, Carol
  • Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years
  • Jennifer Lawrence, Joylbrazier
  • Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn

The winner of the $25 gift card would have to have correctly named all 3 categories winners. Given that Spotlight upset most people’s prediction that The Revenant would come away as Best Picture, we didn’t have anyone who got all 3 correct.

However, lots of submissions (10/34) stated that Leonardo DiCaprio would win Best Actor for The Revenant & Brie Larson would win Best Actress for Room. Great work!

OurĀ  trusty random number generator came in handy, yet again…the winner of a $25 gift card for this Flea Scratcher trivia is:
