GIFs, videos and parody twitter accounts: Here's what went down at the Oscars last night

From John Travolta being unable to read a name to J-Law falling over, it was quite the evening in LA

We don't expect you to have stayed up late last night to catch all the winners and losers from this year's Academy Awards, so being the sound lads that we are, we thought we'd give you a quick rundown of who won what, how, when and why. Well, maybe not the last bit.

There weren't too many surprises as Matthew McConaughey picked up the award for Best Actor after an amazing performance in Dallas Buyers Club, while his co-star Jared Leto also scooped the prize for Best Supporting Actor.

Cate Blanchett's performance in Blue Jasmine, while Lupita Nyong'o was given the nod for her role in Twelve Years a Slave, pipping Jennifer Lawrence to the award, who once again managed to fall over at the ceremony. As usual, she saw the funny side.

The coveted Best Picture award went to 12 Years a Slave, which meant that it was well represented in the final Oscar tally, as it also picked up Best Adapted Screenplay.

The other big winners were Alfonso Cuarón, who was given Best Director for the visually-stunning Gravity, a movie that also scooped a pile of the technical awards, including Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Visual Effects and Best Original Score. Frozen also got the award for Best Animated Feature and Idina Menzel sang 'Let it Go' from the movie, which won the award for Best Original Song, but not before John Travolta managed to mangle her name entirely.

There has obviously already been a Twitter handle set up for Adele Dazeem, who doesn't really exist...but she does now, sort of.

 

The full rundown of all the rest is as follows:

Best Foreign Language Film: The Great Beauty (Italy)

Best Original Screenplay: Spike Jonze (Her)

There were a few honorary Oscars handed out on the night too, and Angela Lansbury aka Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote was among those honoured, along with Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin, Peter W. Anderson, Piero Tosi and all of the film-processing labs who have helped them to get films made over the last century or so.
