Julianne MooreAnd the 2015 Oscar for Best Actress goes to... Julianne Moore for "Still Alice."

Of all the 2015 Oscar races, the Best Actress award had pretty much been decided since the end of 2014. Most pundits and film critics predicted that Moore would win for her moving and undeniably heartbreaking performance in "Still Alice." The other nominees this year -- Marion Cotillard for "Two Days, One Night," Felicity Jones for "The Theory of Everything," Rosamond Pike for "Gone Girl," and Reese Witherspoon for "Wild -- never really stood a chance. Except maybe Witherspoon, whose turn as a former addict literally walking the road to recovery was considered a dark horse.

All the Moviefone editors chose Moore to win, so it's not really a surprise. Let's all revel in this wonderful actress's victory.

Now that the Oscars are over, we can dream about next year's nominees. Or not. Your call.
