The Oscars 2014
« on: March 03, 2014, 02:53:19 PM »
“12 Years A Slave” won best picture at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday night, a poignant victory for the harrowing look at slavery in the United States.

Brad Pitt, one of the producers and stars, accepted the honor and then handed off accepting duties to director and fellow producer Steve McQueen.

 The big winner was the lost-in-space thriller “Gravity,” which won seven Oscars. That tally included directing honors for Alfonso Cuaron, who made history by becoming the first Latin American filmmaker to win in that category. "Gravity" also won for original score, cinematography, editing, visual effects, sound mixing and sound editing.
