Eddie Redmayne Wins Oscar For Best Actor
Eddie looked so adorable — and he’s so humble. He admitted that he realizes how “lucky” he is, and he shook his entire body a few times because he was so shocked. At the end of his speech, Eddie thanked his wife and said a new “fella” (the Oscar) will be joining them at home.
It was such an intense category, but Eddie deserved to win.
This is not the actor’s first win for the role. He took home the same award at the BAFTAs, the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Other nominees included Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Michael Keaton (Birdman) and Steve Carell (Foxcatcher).
Eddie Redmayne Gets Married
Eddie can add this Oscar win to a year full of monumental moments. In December 2014, Eddie tied the knot to his longtime love, Hannah Bagshawe.
“He had been planning on it for a while,” an insider told Us Weekly. “They have a very relaxed and supportive relationship… they seemed to have always known they were going to spend the rest of their lives together.”
Congrats on both milestones, Eddie! What a fantastic year.
