Julianne Moore wins best actress Oscar for Still Alice character

Julianne Moore’s great depiction of an Alzheimer’s sufferer in Still Alice has won her the Academy Award for best actress, after missing out on an acting Oscar four times before.

The 54 years old actress was the red hot favourite for the win after securing a Golden Globe and a Bafta for the character. The film, based on a greatest selling novel from Lisa Genova, tells the story of a linguistics professor who is diagnosed with premature-onset Alzheimer’s.

She beat out struggle from Reese Witherspoon, Rosamund Pike, Marion Cotillard and Felicity Jones. It was a much justified win for Moore, who’d formerly been proposed for Boogie Nights, The End of the Affair, Far From Heaven and The Hours.

It was the only recommendation for the film, directed by Richard Glatzer and his associate Wash Westmoreland, who last work together for The Last of Robin Hood in 2013, which starred Kevin Kline as Errol Flynn.
