Jared Leto, Cate Blanchett, 12 Years A Slave & More: 2014 Academy Award Winners

Loving Leto
Did you hear about when Jared surprised his mom?
Here we are friends. Tonight the highly-anticipated, prestigious Academy Awards were finally on television! The fabulous, comedic Ellen DeGeneres was the exuberant host. Any show with her is sure to be extremely hilarious! It all started with the brilliant opening monologue.

With movies like The Wolf of Wall Street, Dallas Buyers Club, and 12 Years A Slave as nominees for Best Feature Film, it was sure to be a tight race. How were we supposed to choose just one movie we wanted to win?

Even so, we weren’t disappointed with the show.

As unsure as we all were, 12 Years a Slave received the well-deserved award. Gorgeous newcomer, Lupita Nyong’o, received the award for Best Supporting Actress. Let’s not forget how fabulously she and the other nominees were dressed for the show.

The first award of the night for Best Supporting Actor was given to the man who deserved it more than anyone, despite how talented the other nominees are. Jared Leto, whom I adore, was the recipient of the award for his work as Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. Yay, Mr. Leto!

Gravity was the big winner of the night, taking home six of the awards they were nominated for. Incredible!

Unable to resist mentioning the musical moments, did you see Bette Midler and Idina Menzel tonight? These divas were just too fabulous! I was blown away by both of their performances! John Travolta referring to Menzel as “Adele Dazeem” was my favorite moment hands down.

“Let it Go” from Frozen winning Best Music (Original Song).

I know you’re dying to know who else received an award. Check out below to see the remainder of the winners! What were your favorite parts of the show? Let us know in the comments below!
