'12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity' Lead 2014 Oscar Winners

"12 Years a Slave." Fox Searchlight

The 86th Academy Awards have been handed out, and they were basically as we expected: "Gravity" won the most awards with a whopping 7 (director, editing, cinematography, visual effects, original score, sound mixing and sound editing), but not the biggest prize. That went to Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave," which won best picture along with best supporting actress (Lupita Nyong'o) and best adapted screenplay (John Ridley).

Alongside Nyong'o, acting winners included "Dallas Buyers Club" duo Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, and "Blue Jasmine" star Cate Blanchett -- all of which most expected to be the case.  "Frozen," "Twenty Feet From Stardom" and "The Great Beauty," meanwhile, won best animated feature, documentary feature and foreign language film, respectively -- which again, represented no surprises. Though notably, David O. Russell's "American Hustle" went 0-for-10, which wasn't entirely expected.

    Feel it's mainly a vanity party since the results of each awards ceremony nothing different.

    Newsflash: Fruitvale Station wasn't great. Not bad, but not great.

    Sorry. Lol. That was supposed to be my own separate comment.

    The Wolf of Wall Street should not have been nominated over Fruitvale Station, PERIOD. This movie needed much more recognition and it had far more substance. I guess we can only have one movie about Black people per year. Coincidentally had to be about slavery. The only subject that gets any attention.
