The 2014 Academy Awards went pretty much the way I figured it would. Gravity won all the big time effects awards plus the Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron while 12 Years a Slave won the award for Best Picture. 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress while Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for Blue Jasmine. Dallas Buyers Club swept the Actor categories with Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto winning both awards.
I was also really happy to see Spike Jonze win for Best Original Screenplay for Her and was disappointed in the fact that 12 Years a Slave beat out Before Midnight for the Adapted Screenplay award. Overall, this was a pretty good year for the Oscars.
