Oscars 2016: Alicia Vikander Wins Best Supporting Actress for Danish Girl

Oscars 2016 Alicia Vikander

It’s been said — at the end of Showgirls, I believe — that behind every Best Actress, there’s a Best Supporting Actress just waiting to push her down the stairs.

Five of Hollywood’s most supportive supporters went head-to-glamorous-head at the Oscars on Sunday: Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Rooney Mara (Carol), Rachel McAdams (Spotlight), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs).

The honor went to… Vikander for her role of painter Gerda Wegener — the wife of Lili Elbe (played by Eddie Edmayne), one of the first women to have a sex reassignment surgery — in The Danish Girl.
