And the Oscar goes to... 12 Years A Slave

The dust has settled and the Best Picture winner for 2013 is 12 Years A Slave! Overall, it was a bizarrely predictable night. I correctly guessed 21 out 24, my best showing ever. In terms of the ceremony itself, I thought Ellen was a good host. It wasn't the most memorable ceremony, but she was far from bad. More importantly, I was happy with the picks throughout. I think the Academy did a good job this year. I especially liked the split, as I think that 12 Years A Slave and Gravity were both tremendous cinematic achievements and deserved major recognition. 12 Years A Slave won the big one, while Gravity took the lion's share of Oscars. I'm perfectly fine with that. So there you have it. I've been extremely prolific with my Oscar coverage this year, so I'm looking forward to the break. Thanks for reading all season long and may 2014 be another great year at the cinema!
