The Oscars 2014 | Who did win

oscar-statue17-114x300

So the teams behind Gravity and 12 Years a Slave will be making their way home very happy from last night’s Oscars – and so, I imagine, will the bookmakers after what turned out to be a very predictable occasion.

As had been widely anticipated, Gravity was the big winner with seven Academy Awards, including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón, making him the first Latino director in history to claim the prize, while Steve McQueen similarly made history with 12 Years a Slave as the first black filmmaker to direct the year’s Best Film. And, as many had been forecasting, American Hustle left empty-handed.

Which meant my hunch that Jennifer Lawrence would pip Lupita Nyong’o to the Best Supporting Actress Oscar turned out to be wrong. Otherwise, with the exception of the awards for animated short and live short, my predictions turned out to be boringly accurate.

Here’s how the night went, with my ‘will win’ predictions first.
