Eddie Redmayne Trumps Michael Keaton for ‘Best Actor’

The Theory of Everything star Eddie Redmayne just took home the trophy for Best Actor, upsetting the favorite of the evening, Birdman’s Michael Keaton.

Like a giddy British school boy, Redmayne literally jumped for joy and delivered the most adorable speech of the evening, thanking his wife and commenting that they had a new guy coming back “to share [their] home.” In the James Marsh-directed film, Redmayne skillfully and gracefully played the great Stephen Hawking opposite Felicity Jones as his wife Jane.
