:D That is some interesting logic. So they loved Cuaron enough to give him the award over McQueen, but not enough to give Best Picture to GRAVITY over 12 YEARS A SLAVE. The Academy is a strange, strange creature.

What's amazing to me is that both screenwriters got ovations, but Alfonso Cuaron did not.
