Every year, the Oscars proves itself to be an extremely tricky affair. While many of the declared victors are ones that can be universally agreed upon – like J.K. Simmons taking home this year’s Best Supporting Actor prize for Whiplash - there are still other choices that left us scratching our heads.

But of all the categories featured during tonight’s ceremony, which race featured the most shocking losses of the bunch? We’ve singled out the top five, and we’ve listed them below for your judgment. Did the Academy make the right call, or did they screw it up royal? You decide!

Michael Keaton
Best Actor: Michael Keaton
With a total of four awards including Best Picture, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman was definitely the big winner of the night, but sadly it failed to declare victory in one category where everyone was really hoping it would win. For a while it looked like Michael Keaton’s big comeback story would be punctuated with an Oscar statue for him to put on his mantle, but the voters instead chose to go with Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of Stephen Hawking in James Marsh’s The Theory of Everything. At the very least, Keaton did get a moment in the spotlight during Birdman’s Best Picture speech, and he’ll surely be around for many years to come as well.
