If you are reading this it means awards season is officially over. So let's take a deep breath. We made it. 

Yes, the Oscars mark the end of awards season and it was quite the night. Chris Rock returned as host and he totally nailed his monologue, which called out Hollywood for its diversity problem. 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honored the films they deemed to be the best and brightest the industry had to offer in 2015, with "Spotlight" winning the award for Best Picture. "Mad Max: Fury Road" cleaned up by taking home six of the 10 awards it was nominated for, including Best Editing and Best Hair & Makeup. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio finally nabbed the award for Best Actor, and "The Revenant" director Alejandro González Iñárritu took home top honors in his category for the second year in a row.
