The host, Ellen DeGeneres, wasn’t a strike with all Oscar rite viewers, though there have positively been worse shows in a past. Winners in a pivotal categories were as follows.
1. Best Actor – Mathew McConaughey
Leonardo DiCaprio was sloping by many to win this award, though Matthew McConaughey was positively a strike with a critics for his opening in Dallas Buyers Club. Based on a loyal story, McConaughey plays a purpose of a terminally ill HIV studious in a movie. The purpose is one that truly tests an actor’s range, and McConaughey delivered a opening of his career as a impression Ron Woodroof.
It’s engaging to demeanour during McConaughey’s career course as an actor, and he’s not someone we would have sloping to win a desired Best Actor Oscar a few years ago.
Recent roles in Killer Joe (2011), Magic Mike (2012) and Mud (2012) are where we unequivocally see his growth as an actor. McConaughey mislaid forty pounds to play a lead purpose in Dallas Buyers Club, and a joining he put into a film is remarkable.
The thesis matter final an actor able of critical drama, though there are also moments of comedy. The Oscar win will open many opportunities over a entrance years, and it will be really engaging to see how McConaughley develops as an actor.

Blue Jasmine was an equally severe thesis for Blanchett. Charting a tumble from beauty of a New York socialite, Blue Jasmine tackles depression, class, obsession and amicable issues.
Blanchett done anxiety to a miss of clever lead roles for women in today’s cinema in her acceptance speech, and thanked Woody Allen for casting her. She paid reverence to any of her associate nominees individually, and recognized their achievements in a film industry.
3. Best Picture – 12 Years a Slave
Competition was really clever in a Best Picture difficulty this year, with many presaging American Hustle, Gravity or The Wolf of Wall Street would win a award. There was positively no beating when it was reliable 12 Years a Slave followed a Bafta success with a Best Picture award.
A expel of tip names including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch meant a film was always going to be a strike with critics, though it was a instruction by Steve McQueen that creates it one of a best cinema of all time.
Lupita Nyong took a Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role, and 12 Years a Slave also won a Best Writing from an Adapted Screenplay award.
American labour has been tackled by many good cinema in a past, though 12 Years a Slave is now widely regarded as a best on a subject.
Steve McQueen’s instrumentation of a memoirs of Solomon Northrup explores domain cinema like Gone With a Wind haven’t ventured into. The withering story of a giveaway male sole into labour could be a start of a some-more honest hearing of America’s history.
