Eddie Redmayne's Oscar was truly deserved as he commits himself - body and soul - to the role of Stephen Hawking, from youth to his battle with his motor neuron disease. The transformation is truly astounding and I can't think of another actor who would have been better. You also have to give a lot of credit to Felicity Jones, who held her own playing Jane, the long-time wife (and supporter) of her husband. Great supporting cast (from the likes of David Thewlis, Harry Lloyd and Emily Watson) make this one of the best biopics I have seen.
