I think the biggest surprise was Stallone not winning best supporting actor BUT no one can say that Mark Rylance’s performance in Bridge of Spies wasn’t brilliant so definitely a well deserved win. Spotlight winning Best Picture also wasn’t a massive surprise either but most of us would say The Revenant should have been up there. Massive congratulations to the team at Mad Max: Fury Road with an impressive 6 Academy Awards.
