03 March, 2014 by Don Groves

The hot favourites romped home at the 86th Academy Awards as 12 Years a Slave was named best picture and Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron became the first Latino to win the best director award.

Cate Blanchett  got the best actress trophy for Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, ranking as the first Australian actor to win two gold statues. She won best supporting actress for The Aviator in 2005.

Matthew McConaughey nabbed best lead actor for Dallas Buyers Club and that film’s Jared Leto was named best supporting actor. Lupita Nyong’o was judged best supporting actress for 12 Years a Slave.

Catherine Martin made history by taking her Oscars tally to four, surpassing costume designer Orry George Kelly who won for An American In Paris (1951), Les Girls (1957) and Some Like It Hot (1959).

CM collected the awards for costume design and production design for The Great Gatsby while that film’s Beverly Dunn shared  the costume design Oscar. Martin, who won twice before for art direction and costume design for Moulin Rouge!,  thanked her husband Baz Luhrmann and joked that she had “a few notes tucked into her bra… It's a very Australian thing to do."

Director Steve McQueen dedicated the best film Oscar to "all those people who have endured slavery."

Frozen was deemed best animated film, The Great Beauty, Paolo Sorrentino’s love letter to Rome was best foreign language film and 20 Feet from Stardom got the feature documentary trophy.
