…..and now an OSCAR!

Last night the Academy awarded Eddie Redmayne  the Oscar for Best Actor.
We reckon it is the first ever major Oscar for a Cambridge alumni (Redmayne graduated from Trinity College in 2003 , 2:1 Honours for History of Art.)

The award was for his outstanding performance as Professor Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything..

So, as we stand beneath Trinity Great Gate regaling our groups with the great, the good (and the not so good) who have passed through it we can now add the name of Redmayne to rest alongside Bacon, Newton, Lord Byron and all those clever scientists!
