Oscar night celebrates storytellers

“Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” swept the Oscars Sunday night, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.

“Tonight we are here to celebrate storytellers. This year’s movies have captured in compelling narratives the world we live in. We celebrate the power of film and the universal language that connects,” said President of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Cheryl Bonne Isaacs.

“Birdman” won three Oscars including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” won four Oscars including Best Achievement in Costume Design and Best Original Score.

The evening featured performances from Tim McGraw, Adam Levine and The Lonely Island’s adaption of The Lego Movie song, “Everything is Awesome.” Common and John Legend performed “Glory.” Their performance moved many to tears commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s march in Selma, Alabama for the film, “Selma.”
