    Such a basic and boring film. Fury Road, Room or The Big Short should have won

    I highly disagree. Spotlight did shake me while I was watching it. The storytelling was really powerful. It’s hard to forget.

    It was an engaging and thought-provoking film, but felt too similar to All the President’s Men for my taste. And Rachel McAdams being a filler nominee, she was fine but not remotely Oscar worthy. One of those films I’m glad I caught on Netflix than the theatre.

    FYC:

    Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
    Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
    Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)

    This movie is not that old and was only released in 2015.

    It’s one of my favorite movies of the last decade and one of the my favourite Best Picture Oscar wins of all time – I loved the movie and I thought predicting it for Best Picture was more wishful thinking than a rational pick

    It was a very personal film for me and I loved it. I reported a priest who tried to harm me (I fought back!) and I am pretty sure he was just moved to a different parish ): Spotlight was my favorite of the 2015 nominees and I was thrilled by it’s Oscar win! It was also unusual in that it only won 2 Oscars that night!

    (I was amused though by the scene where Rachel McAdams and a victim are walking near the State House and then suddenly one minute later they are in front of a church that is over in the South End! Movie magic!) (;

    Nah. The Post was never boring, so does Spotlight. If you want the true definition of boring, watch La La Land.

    Very powerful film. One of the best of the decade. Although I would’ve picked Carol for Best Picture.

    Movies like The Post and Spotlight to me were very tense and exciting. It can be tough to show research and interviews in the same thrilling way as a car chase or a bear attack. But I loved both movies and I’m very thrilled Spotlight won best picture (I didn’t care for The Revenant). I actually though Rachael was did a great job showing care and empathy with her sources. I too would have nominated Keaton over Ruffalo.

    I quite like how understated it is as a film, nothing flashy or bombastic but more natural. It’s not even in my top 10 of 2015 (top 15, sure), but I greatly enjoyed it.

    Spotlight was great but I still think The Revenant was the best film and should have won that year.

    Crash and Spotlight are the most forgettable BP winners in recent memory.
