‘Birdman’ or bored, man? We watched the Oscars so you didn’t have to

Birdman

Last night’s Academy Awards ceremony went off without a major hitch – disappointingly. The Oscars is always most fun when something goes horribly wrong – an angry or misjudged speech, a serious mispronunciation, a bad-taste joke, a hilarious fashion disaster – all of which were largely absent from yesterday’s ceremony. But there was still plenty to take away from the night – some great gags, some fiery speechifying and some highly controversial awards.

Which hero director kept speaking even after the get-off-the-stage orchestra struck up? Which outspoken outsider was controversially left out of the ‘in memoriam’ section? Who had a potentially ceremony-sabotaging ‘brain fart’?

Find answers to all your nagging questions in our handy list of ‘Ten things we learned at the 2015 Oscars‘.

See below for a full list of the winners on the night.
