    haha as much as I'd love for you to win, if you don't, then I will become the joint winner with 5/6 correct! it's a tricky situation for the judge-- a grey area. Best of luck

    I think there was someone else who got 6/6 but got the film to win most awards wrong so it might go to them if itsConnor isn't legible.

    I was pretty sure Boyhood would win, but it was always between Birdman and Boyhood. Still, I got 5/6, so not bad.

    Eddie Redmayne didn't deserve to win. Seems like all you need to do to win an Oscar now is to make a film about slavery, disability or homophobia.

    While the second like is partially true at least, I can't agree with the first: Redmayne's performance as Hawking was excellent (tbh the film was excellent - it's second only to Kingsman for the films I've watched in the past year).

    Quite pleased that Boyhood flopped quite badly - it was an interesting idea but a pretty poor film: i expected it to sweep up awards like best director for the concept more than the actual film.

    Once again the academy get things hopelessly wrong. Best Picture should have gone to Boyhood and Director to Richard Linklater. Delighted to see Eddie Redmayne win best actor but the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal wasn't even nominated in that category means the academy had already lost all credibility.

    YES! I agree wholeheartedly about the 'Boyhood' thing; it only got so many awards and oscar buzz because it was shot over 12 years, but the film itself was pretty awful (especially the writing and dialogue). I am glad someone else thinks so too.

    Bit nuts how the Oscars dished out awards to Birdman but couldn't award the guy (Michael Keaton) who held the film together.

    I guess 12 years of work (Boyhood) doesn't mean anything...a film's legacy can't be forged by gold I suppose.

    To people who are trashing Boyhood, this film is not a gimmick and it is not poorly executed. It's a masterpiece. Full of warmth, funny and brilliantly acted, this will go down in history as one of the worst mistakes the Academy have ever made.

    If you were bored watching it, then fine but that doesn't make it a bad film and it certainly doesn't give you the right to trash Richard Linklater's extraordinary piece of work.
