HOLLYWOOD, United States: “Spotlight,” a searing portrait of The Boston Globe’s investigation into child sex abuse in the Catholic Church, won a surprise Oscar for best picture on Sunday at the 88th Academy Awards.

The movie, which has picked up a string of honors on its way to Oscars glory, beat rivals “The Big Short,” “Bridge of Spies,” “Brooklyn,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “Room,” and “The Revenant.”

“This film gave a voice to survivors and this Oscar amplifies that voice, which we hope will become a choir that resounds all the way to the Vatican,” said Spotlight producer Michael Sugar while accepting the award.
