A little rain didn’t stop Hollywood A-listers from making it out to the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday night!

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the star-studded evening and treated guests to a memorable opening musical number!  The host sung, danced and even had some special guests join him on stage including Anna Kendrick and Jack Black.  The musical opening was a welcomed change up from the usual jab filled opening monologues.

Harris wasn’t the only star that hit the Oscars stage on Sunday.  Big winners of the night included Julianne Moore for Best Actress in “Still Alice” while “The Theory of Everything” star Eddie Redmayne snagged the statue for Best Actor.

Best Supporting actor went to J.K. Simmons for his role in “Whiplash” while Patricia Arquette took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her 12 years of work on “Boyhood.”

Many were shocked that Arquette was the only winner for the 12 year long film project.  When it came time to announce the biggest award of the night, Best Picture, some were shocked that “Birdman,” starring Michael Keaton, took home the prize!

The breakout film also nabbed the award for Best Original Screenplay.

Even though “Boyhood” didn’t take home the coveted Oscar for Best Picture, the cast, including Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane, couldn’t be more proud of the film!

MYWW host Gina Giordan caught up with the cast of “Boyhood” to find out what it was like to work on the film for over a decade!
