 "Spotlight," a film about the Boston Globe's investigation into priest abuse, won for best picture, taking home its second award of the night. Leonardo DiCaprio, heavily favored to win for lead actor, was not disappointed in his sixth chance to take home an Oscar. His director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, had just gotten his second directing win in a row for "The Revenant." The film came into the night with the most nominations at 12 and got three.

The major upset of the evening was Sylvester Stallone's loss to Mark Rylance of "Bridge of Spies" for supporting actor.

Overall, "Mad Max: Fury Road" has the most bragging rights, with six statuettes from 10 nods in total.
