The 87th annual Academy Awards, held February 22, 2015, offered great performances for the audience. However with minimal potential for gigantic sweeps, it took, both Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel nominated for nine awards a piece, but it seemed unlikely either would run the table.
It was a night where all eight Best Picture nominees went home with at least one award, and where Oscar predictors outguessed themselves more often than not. Lady Gaga highligthed the event with one of the most stunning performances of the night. She sang a medley of hits from the Academy Award-winning film, The Sound Of Music, as a tribute to celebrate the movie’s 50th anniversary.
