Oscar winners announced, including “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
It’s been a busy award season, with plenty of Potter alumni picking up awards at the BAFTAs, the SAG Awards, the Golden Globes, and more. Last night, the highly anticipated Oscars award ceremony took place, and plenty of projects featuring familiar Potter names picked up awards. We originally posted about the nominations back in January of this year, but we can now reveal the winners.
The Grand Budapest Hotel, starring Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort), was the most successful, picking up four awards, tying with Birdman for the most awards received on the night. The Grand Budapest Hotel took home awards for Best Production Design (Adam Stockhausen and Anna Pinnock), Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Frances Hannon and Mark Coulier), Best Costume Design (Milena Canonero), and Best Original Score (Alexandre Desplat – Deathly Hallows – Parts 1 & 2).
The Theory of Everything, featuring David Thewlis (Professor Lupin), picked up the Best Actor award for Eddie Redmayne while The Imitation Game, which featured set and prop design by MinaLima, was awarded Best Adapted Screenplay (Graham Moore).
Finally, Jim Broadbent’s (Professor Slughorn) short film, The Phone Call, won Best Live Action Short.
Congratulations to all of the winners – all very well deserved!
