The Best Picture prize went to Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. The film, which is based on the memoirs of Solomon Northup, also won Best Adapted Screenplay while Lupita Nyong'o was named Best Supporting Actress.

Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for her role in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, while Dallas Buyers Club picked up two acting awards: Matthew McConaughey won the Best Actor prize, while his co-star and 30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto took home the statuette for Best Supporting Actor.
