Oscar Winners 2016: The Complete List

88th Academy Awards 2016

Amid the outcry and protests over the lack of diversity in the acting nominees this year, Chris Rock took his second turn as Oscar host with Spotlight winning the Best Picture at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, handed out at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Mad Max: Fury Road came into the night with the second-most nominations — 10 — and won six trophies, twice as many Oscars as its closest rival. The Revenant, which had a leading 12 nominations, and Spotlight were the only other films to win multiple awards, with three and two respectively.

Alejandro G. Inarritu won Best Director for The Revenant, becoming the only the second helmer to win back-to-back Oscars, following Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1949-50. The film also scored the first Academy Award for Leonardo DiCaprio, who won Best Actor in his sixth nom. Room star Brie Larson won Best Actress, her first Oscar in her first nomination.
