Sacha Baron Cohen reprising his role as Ali G was a last-minute addition and a suggestion by his friend. To do this before presenting with Olivia Wilde, Cohen had to cover his face around the Dolby Theater after his wife applied a fake goatee on him in the washroom as well as practicing his lines to a few people. After presenting Room (2015) on stage, Cohen was approached by the ceremony producers, who were unhappy with him presenting as Ali G instead of himself. See more »

Andrew Whitehurst - Winner: Best Visual Effects:
I'm really bad at predicting this, apparently. This is so utterly unexpected. Visual effects is massively a team game, more so maybe than any other department. And we have to thank people in two directions: we've got to thank the studio, we've got to thank the production. We've got to thank Alex for being an amazing director. We have to thank Alicia for being Ava. And we have to thank the teams of artists, production and technical personnel at Double Negative, Milk VFX, and Utopia, who are ...

Stallone is upset by a Russian Spy! Leo finally wins! And it's "Spotlight" as best picture!
"The 88th Annual Academy Awards" was one that moved along about the same pace as host Chris Rock bombed joke after joke about the no black nominees crisis, really he went overboard yet he tried to be funny. Still the music and presenters and parody parts were okay like the use of girl scout cookies and "Star Wars" robot appearances. Still the big surprise and most disappointing thing was Mark Rylance winning for supporting actor! This should have been Sly's night why did the voting members knock him out! Stallone has been in the business to long he deserves an Oscar. And as expected Leo finally wins a little gold man as his "Best Actor" win was well deserved for his raw and tough performance in "The Revenant". And again in a little surprise for best picture "Spotlight" wins true it was an excellent drama an investigative film with a good message of exposing corrupt religious leaders, as it's clear that Hollywood and voting members still love news and journalism films as it's brains over brawn and grit as the toughness of "The Revenant" could not match the grace and elegant powerful message of "Spotlight". Overall okay "Oscars" with Chris Rock speaking to much and a big knockout blow to Stallone, and a deserved win for Leo, and ending with a powerful film named "Spotlight" taking the top spot in front of the Academy light at the end!
