The story of Texas native Chris Kyle, directed by Clint Eastwood only managed to take home an Oscar for Best Sound Editing.

The two biggest awards they were up for were "Best Picture" which went to "Birdman" and Bradley Cooper lost to Eddie Redmayne in "The Theory Of Everything" for Best Actor.

Ultimately 'American Sniper' is the big winner at it has dominated at the Box Office and in public opinion as demonstrated in this poll.
