An astounding 36.6 million people tuned into the 86th annual Academy Awards Sunday to celebrate this year’s most talked about movies, actors, composers and filmmakers.
In case you missed it, the big Oscar winners of the night were, predictably, “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Whiplash.” Unfortunately Neil Patrick Harris’ hosting skills received less-than-stellar reviews, with some even referring to his performance as cringe-worthy. On the other hand, “Boyhood’s” Patricia Arquette and “Whiplash’s” Graham Moore stole the show with powerful acceptance speeches that drew attention to important social issues – both getting standing ovations from the crowd.
You can still catch some of the winners and nominees in theatres – come over to Carmike at Marketfair to see some of them, such as American Sniper and Still Alice. Happy watching!
