Oscar Night Wrap-up & Pick the Winners Contest Winners

On Sunday, March 2, 2014 we held our 10th Annual Oscar Night Party. It was a roaring success. We had almost 70 attendees, all of whom enjoyed the show and winning the fantastic door prizes.

As for the Oscar winners, there were very little surprises over-all. At our Year in Movies: 2013 program on February 25, 2014, I announced the top picks, based on previous award wins. Seven of the top eight on that list ended up winning Oscars, the only non-winner being Chiwetel Ejiofor for “12 Years a Slave”. And I was also off some with my picks. I picked six of the eight top winners, being only wrong with American Hustle for both Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

Here are the Top Winners:

BEST PICTURE: “12 Years a Slave”

BEST DIRECTOR: Alfonso Cuarón – “Gravity”

LEAD ACTOR: Matthew McConaughey – Dallas Buyers Club

LEAD ACTRESS: Cate Blanchett – “Blue Jasmine”

SUPPORTING ACTOR: Jared Leto – Dallas Buyers Club

SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Lupita Nyong’o – “12 Years a Slave”


ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: John Ridley – “12 Years a Slave”
