Even though the Best Picture race seemed to be a close one, the 86th Annual Academy Awards yielded few surprises, with the top awards mostly shaking out the way pundits expected. In a rare split, Best Picture went to 12 Years a Slave, while Best Director went to Alfonso Cuarón of Gravity. Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett took the top acting prizes for Dallas Buyers Club and Blue Jasmine, respectively. Lupita Nyong'o ended up edging out Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress.
