You forgot that the Oscar for bigger cretin went to John Travolta and the Oscar for emerging talent went to the unknown Adela Dazeem who he introduced as singing "Let It Go" from Frozen.

Most shocking snub? - American Hustle not in best make-up and hair, especially since the Academy apparently love everything else about that movie.

Comment on: eOne tops £100m at UK box office
While it is accurate to say eOne are the second independent distributor to hit £100 million in the UK in a box office year it should, perhaps, be noted that Entertainment did it twice, in both 2002 and 2003, with 2002 actually being the bigger with £149.2 million and EFD actually the #1 distributor in the UK that year.
