Oscars 2016: 'Spotlight' wins Best Picture
MANILA, Philippines – Spotlight took home the Best Picture award at the 2016 Oscars, held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California Sunday night, February 28 (the 29th in Manila).
Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, and Stanley Tucci portray investigative journalists of The Boston Globe’s real-life Spotlight team.
In 2002, their Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation unraveled a scandal of Catholic priests sexually abusing minors in Boston, and exposed its cover-up by lawyers and government officials.
This is the first nomination for producers Michael Sugar, Nicole Rocklin, and Blye Pagon Faust, but the second for Steve Golin who was previously nominated for Alejandro Gonzáles Iñárritu’s Babel (2006). – Rappler.com
