Spotlight, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson shine at Oscars 2016


The most anticipated awards ceremony in the entertainment calendar has just concluded with Spotlight, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson scoring big.

Spotlight was adjudged the Best Film, while Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor award for his role in Spotlight and Brie Larson walked away with the Best Actress award for her role in Room.

Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra made her debut as one of Oscars presenters.

Priyanka, who has found international fame following her stint on American TV show ‘Quantico,’ looked ravishing in a structured cage bustier mermaid dress in white silk tulle adorn with 3D shimmering climbing flowers at the red carpet of the event underway in Dolby Theatre here on Sunday.

Watch: It was a proud moment for India when Priyanka Chopra, along with Liev Schreiber, was called on stage to present an Award in the 'Best Editing' category. The actress was her usual charming self as she first enlisted the nominees and then announced the winner. The Oscar for the 'Best Editing' went to Margaret Sixel for 'Mad Max: Fury Road.' After presenting the award, Priyanka also interacted with the winner. Candid pictures of the two were rather endearing.
