Movie Talk The 86th Acamedy Awards - The Oscars (Results)

  1. Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave has won the Oscar for Best Picture at the 86th Academy Awards.

    The slavery epic also picked up awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong'o on a night when it seemed - for a while at least - that Gravity was going to sweep the board.

    Gravity picked up a handful of Oscars for its backroom staff - many of whom are British - but by far its biggest award was Alfonso Cuaron's Best Director gong.

    The main winners of the 86th Annual Academy Awards:
    • Best Picture - 12 Years a Slave
    • Actor in a Leading Role - Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club
    • Actress in a Leading Role - Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
    • Supporting Actress - Lupita Nyong'o, 12 Years a Slave
    • Supporting Actor - Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
    • Best Director - Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity
    • Original score - Steven Price, Gravity
    • Original song - Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez for Let It Go from Frozen
    • Original screenplay - Spike Jonze, Hero
    • Adapted screenplay - John Ridley, 12 Years A Slave
     
  2. I thought McConaughey really pulled it out of the bag with his performance, depicting a character that could be at once thoroughly dislikable and also very admirable.

    He was very deserving of his Best Actor Award
