Oscar Winners List 2014: '12 Years A Slave' Takes Best Picture, 'Gravity' Wins 7 Awards

Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" was named Best Picture at the Oscars' 2014 ceremony. The drama, which earned nine total nominations at the 86th annual Academy Awards, also won awards for Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o) and Best Adapted Screenplay (written by John Ridley).

While "12 Years a Slave" won the Oscars' top honor, "Gravity" was the Academy Awards' big winner. Alfonso Cuaron's film, which was tied with "American Hustle" for the most nominations on the night, 10 in total, took home seven awards. Cuaron himself won two: Best Director and Best Editing, an award he shared with Mark Sanger. ("American Hustle" lost in all 10 of its categories.)

In addition to Nyong'o, acting winners included Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor for "Dallas Buyers Club") and Cate Blanchett, who won Best Actress for "Blue Jasmine." She received a standing ovation upon accepting her award. "Sit down, you're too old to be standing," she joked. She thanked her competitors in the category as well as Woody Allen, the film's controversial writer-director.

Jared Leto won Best Supporting Actor for "Dallas Buyers Club," where he played Rayon, a transgender woman suffering from AIDS.

Other winners include "Frozen" (Best Animated Feature), "20 Feet From Stardom" (Best Documentary Feature), "The Great Beauty" (Best Foreign Language Film) and "Her" (Best Original Screenplay for Spike Jonze).
