The annual Academy Awards ceremony took place last night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with all the usual celebrity pomp and circumstance.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosted its 86th annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles last night, the biggest night of the awards season and the industry in general. The ceremony was hosted by talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres.

The big news of the night was the award for the Best Picture which went to ‘12 Years A Slave‘, directed by Steve McQueen – this was the first time that the Academy honoured the work of a black director. The biggest winner on the night was ‘Gravity‘, which won seven Oscars in total.

So, without any further ado, here are the winners in the major categories.
