The Oscars 2016 ended with a memorable note as Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his long-awaited Academy Award for Best Actor ("The Revenant"). However, there were also quite a few surprise wins at this year's Oscars.
The biggest surprise of the ceremony came as "Spotlight" snatching the Oscar for Best Picture from "The Revenant" and "Mad Max: Fury Road." Though "Spotlight" won several critics' awards, including Writers Guild of America Award and Satellite Award, it was a close race between the three movies.
The Internet was flooded with speculations that Sylvester Stallone would get an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role of Rocky Balboa in "Creed." However, it came as a bit of a shock when the award was bagged by Mark Rylance for "Bridge of Spies."
Competing against high-budget and iconic movies like "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "The Revenant" and "Mad Max: Fury Road," sci-fi movie "Ex Machina" took the Oscar for Best Visual Effects home. It definitely came as a shock, especially to science fiction fans and viewers as "Ex Machina" was made with a budget of mere $15 million -- the lowest budgeted movie among its other competitors.
Beating Lady Gaga and eight-time nominee Diane Warren's song "Til it Happens to You," the widely criticised Sam Smith's song "Writing's on the Wall" from James Bond movie "Spectre" bagged the Oscar for Best Original Song that surely left several fans upset.
