birdmanAnd the winner of the 2015 Oscar for Best Picture is... "Birdman."

This year, there were nine nominees up for Best Picture: "American Sniper," "Birdman," "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything," and "Whiplash." But, as "Highlander" tells us, there can be only one.

All of the films were, we're sure, just honored to be nominated, but only "Birdman" walked away with the win. Since the nominations were announced, the consensus has always been that it's really just a race between "Boyhood" and "Birdman," so tonight's winner wasn't really a surprise. Well, it kinda was.

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