Kate Winslet’s reaction sums it up perfectly #justiceforLeo

It was also an important night for the Irish with a record 7 nominations. Irish short film Stutterer took home the Oscar for Best Short Film.

Benjamin Cleary, who wrote, directed and edited the film, was joined onstage to accept the award by producers Serena Armitage and Shan Christopher Ogilvie, and director of photography Michael Paleodimos.

President Michael D Higgins has hailed the strength of the country’s film industry on a night when home-grown talent was strongly represented at the Oscars. He said the strong line-up of Irish actors and film-makers was a “tribute to the Irish film industry”.

Although she narrowly missed out on the Best Actress gong to Brie Larson (Room) Saoirse Ronan had a great time nonetheless. The Carlow native donned a beautiful emerald green custom Calvin Klein dress with a plunging neckline and velvet straps and made it onto the Vanity Fair Best Dressed List. Cate Blanchett and Lady Gaga also made it onto the list wearing.
