Here are the winners for the 2016 Academy Awards!

02.29.2016

Oh what a day...what a lovely day! Yes the 2016 Academy Awards are almost here after a crazy 2015 and I am once again proud to be hosting the LIVE CHAT event which will be taking place on Sunday beginning at 7:30 pm EST sharp. 2015 brought about some absolutely insane competition and there's absolutely no telling which way the votes will go as there's so much talent involved. Will Leo finally win his golden idol? Will George Miller take the Oscar for Best Director? So many questions and so many answers to come.

The best part again is that anyone can participate and we always have a blast chatting with everyone during the show. So if you'd like to get in on the fun, just visit back to this article before the ceremony as again the chat will begin at 7:30pm EST. Also if you happen to be mobile or out-and-about during the ceremony, our very own  Editor-in-Chief and ultimate badass Paul Shirey will once again be hosting our LIVE TWITTER FEED (@JoBlo Twitter page) for all the latest updates on the event. Hope to see you there!

THANK YOU very much to all those who joined us for the live chat! A brilliant time like always!

It was easily the most entertaining awards show in many years. Still a bit long. And while my Oscar pool was shot early on, I can't disagree with most of what happened. And I can't remember the last time I really enjoyed the Oscar host (Billy Crystal was fine last time, but I think Jon Stewart was the last host to truly impress me). Even with some of his Academy apologizing, I thought Rock did a bang-up job, and I really liked how they did the sound awards. Now, this is all put in perspective,

Even with some of his Academy apologizing, I thought Rock did a bang-up job, and I really liked how they did the sound awards. Now, this is all put in perspective, because I don't watch the Oscars to really be entertained. I watch them to see if my people win. I had the supporting, VFX, shorts, and Picture wrong (actually, I had guessed Alicia Vikander, but she's not the one I put in to win). At the same time, Mad Max, The Revenant, and Spotlight all got recognized. So I can't complain too much. I know a lot of people probably got fed up with it, but I thought the controversy made the show more entertaining, because of how painfully they tried to make it seem like a non-issue (when was the last time anyone saw Lou Gossett Jr. anyway?).

I was surprised how enjoyable the Oscar was this year. Comparing with last year with Neil Patrick Harris, this one with Chris Rock wins by a huge mile.

As much as I love Leo, the actor it seems Everyone has an agenda or something to shove in the public's face. Racism, equality, global warming, gay this and that, why Chik Filet shouldn't be closed on Sunday...give it a Goddamn rest ya buncha hypocrites...you make movies! Enjoy it indeed and let us enjoy them too...end rant.

I think last year set the precedent of what should be said in the acceptance speech. They're all for good causes, don't get me wrong. It's a good opportunity to get the message across globally. But I too agree with you. It's an Oscar night. It doesn't have to be serious all the time. Just enjoy the show for once.

How many times do actors really get to speak in front of millions of people and say what they really think? The Awards season is the only time this many people will be watching an actor live and unfiltered. I'm not saying that it can't be insufferable, but I won't promise that I wouldn't do the same thing in their position. Especially since Leo's thing was anecdotal.

This has happened for decades. I wish more presenters and/or hosts would do what Paddy Chayefsky did after Vanessa Redgrave's speech.

All good replies and I understand how the political, mass media, endorsement machine works and yes, given the opportunity and platform to reach millions it just becomes over stimulation at a point and detracts from the celebration of what is an industry that provides us an escape from reality, for some, many times over the course of the year.

Mad Max deserves every Award it received. So far this year's Oscar is much better than last year. Chris Rock is a better host than Neil Patrick Harris.

Remember when Argo won best picture and everyone was saying the exact same things. It's almost the exact same situation except I think Argo won best adapted screenplay.

ARGO won 3 awards (including, as you said, Best Adapted Screenplay), which is usually the minimum for a Best Picture winner, but that wasn't the issue. The issue was that it wasn't even nominated for Best Directing.

The rumors of Leo's (mild) stroke from last week might have been true after all. His bottom lip was weird, and his speech was slightly slurred. I'm shocked more press aren't covering this.

Here is my beef. Best Picture basically means that the movie chosen had the best of everything overall. Like best production design, acting, directing, screenplay, etc. So sure it might not win the best in every category, but if overall one movie is deemed having the best acting, sound, effects, directing etc, should't that be The Best Picture? because Spotlight won what? one award...best original screenplay? but lost out on every other award etc. but Mad MAx wins 6 awards meaning OVERALL it

I don't think so. A movie is the sum of its parts. And just because SPOTLIGHT didn't win in the otehr categories, it doesn't mean that it didn't excell in those aspects.

Those are two wildly different movies right there. And awarding the best movie arbitrarily is kind of silly, anyway. Spotlight didn't do much in the way of sound editing or costume design. Mad Max didn't have the strongest screenplay, or even the strongest performances (maybe Charlize was robbed in your opinion). The fact it came down to a three-way is what shocked me.

I haven't seen EX MACHINA but, if its low-budget visual effects look as good as big-budget visual effects, it deserved to win, right?

Here's my take on who deserved to win this category. I think to determine a winner, you have to of course look at how good the effects are, but also on what each film had to achieve and the effort and techniques used to bring those effects to life. Now, I'm not saying that being an effects artist on Ex Machina was a cake-walk or anything, but what it needed to be convincing and what it was trying to achieve was clearly less ambitious and less technical than the work that comprised the effects

Ex Machina is essentially a low budget, sci-fi, art-film. Only a handful of effects were needed to help tell the story, whereas Star Wars and Mad Max depend more heavily on the effects and thus the effects are more important to the overall storytelling in the film. The effects had to be extremely convincing for each shot in those films and there were a TON of them! Now, I'm not saying this Oscar should be about quantity over quality, but did I miss something groundbreaking or earth shattering with the effects shots in Ex Machina? To be honest here, I don't think I did. It's not like the Matrix, which in that case had technology invented on the spot specifically for the movie, breaking new ground in the process. No, there wasn't anything really new or impressive to the effects of Ex Machina, it just had good directing and writing.

BEAR STORY! Viva Chile!

I thought that, in order to win Best Picture, a film needed to win in at least 2 other categories. I knew that SPOTLIGHT was only a front-runner for Original Screenplay, so I didn't think it would win. By the end of the night, it had only won that award while THE REVENANT had won Director and a couple more, so I assumed the latter was going to win. I'm not upset about the results, since I thought both were equally good, but I am upset about losing in the prediction contests.

Mark Rylance had the most understated and honest performance of the year. I called his win back in October before nominations even got out. Sly was amazing and Mark Ruffalo was a classic Oscar bait performance, but Rylance delivered that kind of performance that wasn't a performance. The old saying "don't let them catch you acting" ... He embodied that. I'm so happy about that decision, but would've been just as happy if Stallone won.

I feel like the Oscars have been getting the best picture category wrong for a while now. This really should have been a year that Revenant took home all the big ones it was nominated for. Tom Hardy was great, maybe even better than Leo and should have taken supporting actor. Leo definitely earned it and he had some stiff competition. I saw all the movies nominated and can say in my honest opinion that Spotlight was not even in the top three of those nominated. Don't get me wrong, it was good

What would be funny is if Leo did win and when he walked up to the stage and flat out rejects it by saying he doesn't need an academy award to prove he is a good actor. Then smashes it in the ground and walks off.
