Oscars 2014: See All Of The Winners From The Academy Awards

It doesn't get much better than winning an Oscar. We know who won the award for the best selfie in the world (cough, Ellen), but who went home with their own gold statue? While you were sleeping we were watching the ceremony, so here is the break down of who won what...

Best Actress - Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine

It was a tough category this year, as Amy Adams, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep were all nominated. Winner Cate Blanchett had a long list of thank yous, but it was her shout out to the importance of making films with strong female leads which was the most powerful. Go Cate go!

Best Actor - Matthew McConaughey

We feel a little sad for Leo, but Matthew McConaughey was brilliant beyond brilliant in Dallas Buyers Club. After a quick hug from presenter Jennifer Lawrence, he kicked off his lengthy speech by thanking God and his father who 'taught him to be a man.' He then made us a liiiiitle teary when he delivered a touching thanks to his wife and children.

Best Film - 12 Years A Slave

Gravity might have racked up an impressive number of Oscars, but it was 12 Years A Slave which was named Best Film. Director Steve McQueen said in his speech: 'Everyone deserves not just to survive, but to live.' Now that's a quote-able quote.

Best Supporting Actor - Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club

Jared Leto won the first Academy Award of the night and set the bar HIGH for the acceptance speeches. He thanked his date - his mother - as he said: 'I just want to say I love you Mum and thank you for teaching me to dream.' Pass us the Kleenex...

Best Supporting Actress - Lupita Nyong'o, 12 Years A Slave

It was stiff competition this year as there was a world class list of nominees, including Jennifer Lawrence and Julia Roberts. But it was Lupita who scooped the Academy Award, and she wafted onto the stage in her blue Prada gown after a quick hug with Liza Minnelli. As you do! Lupita said in her speech: 'Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition, it doesn't escape me that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much sadness in someone else's.' She ended her thank yous by saying: 'When I look down at this golden statue may it remind me and every little child that your dreams are valid, thank you.'

Best Director - Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity

We told you Gravity dominated this year! Director Alfonso Cuaron went home with the award for Best Director. He made the audience chuckle when he joked: 'For many of us making this film was a transformative experience. For a lot of people this transformation was wisdom, for me it was the colour of my hair.' #LOL
