86th Academy Awards: Oscar winners and thoughts
12 Years A Slave, Gravity, Dallas Buyers Club, Frozen and more take home the Oscars. Here's the full list of winners...
Overnight, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - AMPAS to its mates - handed out its annual clutch of Oscars. And as it turned out, the event went by the form book, with just one or two little surprises along the way.
The big prizes were split between 12 Years A Slave, Gravity and Dallas Buyers Club, with the former taking Best Picture, but Alfonso Cuaron picking up a gong for his directorial work on Gravity. Dallas Buyers Club picked up the two acting awards - for Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto - that it was broadly expected to. There were two gongs for Disney's Frozen too, in the week that it passed $1bn at the global box office.
Of the surprises? Lupita Nyong'o's award for Best Supporting Acrtress for 12 Years A Slave was welcome, and Spike Jonze won gold for his screenplay to Her.
We should give a bit shout out too to the team of Framestore in London for their now award-winning effects work on Gravity, and also to Steven Price, for his excellent score. Here, then, is the full list of winners...
