Stephen Hawking Reacts to Eddie Redmayne's Oscar Win 2015

Stephen Hawking's Sweet Reaction to Eddie Redmayne's Oscar Win

One of the biggest moments from last night's Oscars came when Eddie Redmayne won for best actor thanks to his work in The Theory of Everything. He portrayed Stephen Hawking — the renowned physicist who lives with ALS — and said, "This Oscar belongs to all of those people around the world battling ALS. It belongs to one exceptional family — Stephen, Jane and the Hawking children. I will be his custodian. I will be at his beck and call. I will wait on him hand and foot."

Stephen Hawking himself took to Facebook when he heard the news.

Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne for winning an #Oscar for playing me in The Theory of Everything Movie. Well done Eddie, I'm very proud of you. -SH
