Bob Hoskins, Robin Williams and Richard Attenborough were amongst the late stars remembered in a touching tribute at the Oscars 2015.

It was an emotional and respectful video which featured stars and crew who have passed away over the last year, and the actors were amongst those honoured.

Also featured in the video were Mickey Rooney, Elizabeth Pena, James Garner and Lauren Bacall, although Joan Rivers wasn't included.

The tribute was aired after a touching speech from Meryl Streep who praised the uniqueness of every talent who has passed away.

She said: "There will never be anyone like them, each and every one."

The stars gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the annual ceremony, with the biggest names in Hollywood in attendance.

Eddie Redmayne continued his impressive and successful award season so far with more recognition for his performance in The Theory of Everything, after even Benedict Cumerbatch's parents tipped him to win over their son.


Meanwhile, the ceremony saw Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel dominate the awards with four prizes each.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inurritu's movie took home the Best Picture, Directing, Original Screenplay and Cinematography trophies on a very special night for the filmmaker.

Tying with four gongs of its own, Wes Anderson's film was honoured for Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Production Design and Best Original score.


Rita Ora already picked up a fan in Oprah Winfrey after her performance at Harvey Weinstein's pre-Oscars bash as she prepared for the huge event.

While the Fifty Shades of Grey star belted out Academy Award-nominated song Grateful from Beyond the Lights, it was Lady Gaga who stole the show with her Sound of Music tribute.
