Oscars 2015 – Everything You Need To Know!

There were a few talking points at last night’s (22/2/2015) 87th Academy Awards, which took place in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The celebrities proved that the Oscars is more than fashion and winning awards. It is a platform for the stars to be vocal about important issues.

Prior to the Oscars, actress Reese Witherspoon and other A-listers showed support for The Representation Project’s #AskHerMore initiative, which asks journalists to ask female celebrities about more than their outfits on the red carpet. Reese took to Instagram to help promote the campaign,  I love this movement #AskHerMore..have you heard of it? It’s meant to inspire reporters to ask creative questions on the red carpet. I love the Oscars AND fashion like many of you – & am excited to share #WhoAmIWearing later tonight. But I’d also love to answer some of these Qs….And hear your suggestions?! (Share em below!) There are so many amazing, talented nominees this year..! Let’s hear their stories! Spread the word.’

Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted this year’s awards, said, “Welcome to the 87th Oscars. Tonight we honour Hollywood’s best and whitest — sorry, brightest” blasting criticism of the Hollywood system, drawing attention to the awards’ lack of diversity and how majority of the nominees were white. While the awards was on, civil rights groups staged a protest outside and were vocal about how “white wash” this year’s show was, with all 20 acting nominees were white.

It was the night to be vocal about important issues! Graham Moore, winner of Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game, announced he had attempted suicide at 16 because he felt “weird” for being gay. “This is for that kid who feels like they don’t fit in,” he said: “Stay weird, stay different.”

Patricia Arquettes spoke about gender equality in her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress, which has become one of the major talking points of the night. In her speech, Patricia stated “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” Her speech received huge appreciation from Dame Meryl Streep, who showed her support about the speech, along with Jennifer Lopez.

Nicole Kidman’s chartreuse-fading-into-pink dress does nothing for her, the shimmery fabric washes her out and the red belt is pointless.
