Both actresses are rising stars that give two of the year's most resonant performances. Eddie Redmayne presented the star with the 2016 Academy Award for Best Actress.
Oh, wow! Thank you first to the Academy. I want to start big because the thing I love about movie making is how many people it takes to make it," Larson said before thanking the crew. "Jacob Tremblay, my partner through this in every way possible - my real partner, Alex Greenwald, I love you" She said.
