12 Years a Slave actress, Lupita Nyong’o, took home the Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar earlier on Sundaynight, and she proved a gracious and humble winner as she travelled up to pick up her prize.
The winner of the Best Actor in a Supporting Role went to Jared Leto for his office in Dallas Buyers Club, beating out Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Jonah Hill (Wolf of Wall Street), and Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave).
In other awards, Disney’s Frozen was a hugely popular success as it brought home the accolade for Best Animated Feature.
The annual awards were broadcast round the various leading films of the year, with Gravity an unsurprising winner for the Best Cinematography award, and The Great Gatsby winner Best Costume Design.
Gravity also managed to acquire a stream of other technical awards, including Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, and Best Film Editing.
The 86th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday night, with millions reportedly tuning in across the nation and world for Hollywood’s most glamorous event of the twelvemonth.
This year was especially interesting as there was no clear favorite to hold the adult awards, with a figure of the nominated films gaining widespread praise from critics.
