Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his Oscar, Chris Rock threw down the #OscarsSoWhite issue and… wait a minute, Spotlight took home Best Picture?
Aside from the red carpet gowns tying into a Disney princess theme, we decided to look into the biggest shockers of the night, and those that we kind of saw coming . . . sorry Leo.
Ex Machina, the underdog in comparison to The Revenant and Mad Max, surprised us all when it won Best Visual Affects.

And along with Mad Max winning six awards at the 2016 Oscars — way to give the other guys a chance — The Sheridan Sun’s Brittany Preocanin and Cait Carter live tweeted predictions and opinions.
