Washington has winners already...

Well that was fast.  They just released their nominees on Saturday.  Why do that if you're going to release your winners two days later?  Makes little sense to me.  Just release them all on the same day.  Alas, here we go:

Cinematography: Gravity
Documentary: Blackfish
Original Screenplay: Her
Score: 12 Years a Slave
Editing: Gravity
Foreign Language Film: The Broken Circle Breakdown
Art Direction: The Great Gatsby
Animated Feature: Frozen
Best Portrait of Washington: Lee Daniels' The Butler
Young Performance: Tye Sheridan 
Supporting Actor: Jared Leto
Actress: Cate Blanchett
Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave
Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o
Actor: Chiwetel Ejiofor
Acting Ensemble: 12 Years a Slave
Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Picture: 12 Years a Slave

Thoughts:  Here's another instance where Cuaron wins despite a '12 Years a Slave' sweep, and Leto is holding onto his lead.  This is 'Blackfish's first win, and I love the mention for Tye Sheridan, although I'm surprised that he beat out Adele.  


  1. It's great to see Mud get something. I'm loving all of the Cuaron wins as well.

    1. I'm starting to wonder if we'll see a Picture/Director split this year, with Cuaron winning and 12 Years taking picture. They are the two most lauded films of the year, and it would be a way to honor them both.
