The 87th Annual Academy Awards


The 87th annual Academy Awards took place this Sunday, playing host to several of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest.  Funny man Neil Patrick-Harris hosted the ceremony with the usual aplomb, while the Red Carpet dazzled with the likes of Rita Ora, Margot Robbie, Dakota Johnson, Anna Kendrick, a very pregnant Keira Knightley, Oprah, John Legend, The Cumberbatches, and Jared Leto.
