Oscars 2014: “12 Years A Slave” Wins Best Picture

“12 Years a Slave” won the Oscar for best picture at Sunday’s Academy Awards, while the 3D space spectacle “Gravity” triumphed as the night’s top award-winner.

Steve McQueen’s slavery odyssey, based on Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, has been hailed as a landmark corrective to the movie industry’s long omission of slavery stories and years of whiter tales like 1940 best-picture winner “Gone With the Wind.”
