Sometimes, it's obvious who's going to come away from the Oscars as a known winner. Sometimes, it comes down to two leading movies, as with 2015's horserace between Richard Linklater's Boyhood and Alejandro González Inarittu's Birdman, which eventually pulled ahead. But the 2016 Oscars have been one of the most confusing roller-coaster awards ever. Films that were supposed to be favorites whom many thought might win first weren't even nominated.
Don't you worry, you pretty little mind, we have the complete list for you. And to tell you it's been an exciting awards season and these winners will just hold your heart in "AWE". While Chris Rock took his second turn as the Oscar host, let's have a look at the proud winners.
