Gravity won for best director and a bunch of other awards, but leading actress Sandy Bullock didn't win best actress for her performance. Instead, Kate Blanchet won for Blue Jasmine. Lupita Nyong-o won best supporting actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave, which also won best picture. Leo DiCaprio still didn't win best actor, but showed sportsmanship and hugged winner Matthew McConaughey. Jaret Leto won best supporting actor, for his work with McConaughey.
Also: Ellen took an epic selfie, ordered pizza for the crowd, made 4(ish) outfit changes and reminded us why we will never be cool enough to host the Oscars.
Matthew McConaughey won best lead actor & Jared Leto won best supporting actor, both for their work in Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey lost half his body weight for the film to depict a desperate AIDs patient, so we think the Oscar makes it worth it. Plus, his acceptance speech was so perfectly Matthew.
Ellen Broke Twitter
Ellen decided to top her previous Oscar's selfie by cramming as many celebs into one picture as Bradley Cooper's arms could accommodate. Not only did she briefly shut down Twitter, but the selfie has been retweeded more than 2 million times. Mission accomplished.
Broadway superstar Idina Menzel brought down the house with Frozen's "Let it Go"... then it won the Oscar for best original movie song. Watch the performance, and John Travolta's stunning linguistic efforts, here.
