Oscars 2014: So who won?

Lupita-Nyongo-Academy-AwardsIt was really generous of Gravity to let some other films win a few shiny gold men. The Alfonso Cuarón-directed film took home honors for Cuarón (Best Director), Best Original Score, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Visual Effects.

Despite winning the most Oscars, 12 Years a Slave won the top prize and also saw Lupita Nyong’o win for Best Supporting Actress with an emotional, powerful, grateful-newbie acceptance speech. Her gratitude was heartwarming and welcomed.

Host and Master General Ellen DeGeneres did her ‘Ellen DeGeneres’ thing, sans dancing, but plus pizza, so you know, bonus! Though a safe option for host, DeGeneres is always supremely likable, so it’s hard to chug any haterade in her face.

Everyone. Talked. For so. Long. From Jared Leto (thanking his mom, your mom, the rest of moms everywhere) to Cate Blanchett, everyone seemed to be taking their sweet ass time up on that podium. Though Blanchett made a powerful point: Women are in movies, women can be strong characters, and women can make a shitload of money at the box office. And she said it while holding her statue. Perfect.

Kevin Spacey showed up and made a House of Cards quip and this means everything because House of Cards.

I would’ve loved to see Karen O win an Oscar. Because she is Karen-fucking-O. But her performance of “The Moon Song” was simple, yet haunting – beautifully delicate and meaningful. I’m just glad the world got to see another side of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman.

Also, never forget: Matthew McConaughey’s hero: Matthew McConaughey.
