The 86th Academy Awards have come and gone, and if the show has taught us anything it is that the oddsmakers know what they are doing. If you were to have bet with the odds in your Oscar pool on Sunday night, you would have guessed correctly in almost every single category.

Best Picture ended up going to “12 Years a Slave” while the award for directing went to Alfonso Cuaron for “Gravity.” Those two were the favorites and their wins were expected by most.

Best Actor and Supporting Actor went to Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto respectively. Their work on “Dallas Buyers Club” was praised by critics and audiences alike, and this win cements their position among the best talent working today.

Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong’o won Oscars for their acting on “Blue Jasmine” and “12 Years a Slave.” Blanchett was a guaranteed win, but Nyong’o was favored by only a slight margin. She very well could have lost out to Jennifer Lawrence and it was nice to see her win over a massive star like that.

One sort-of-surprise is “American Hustle” not winning a single award. This shutout may seem shocking to some, as the film was so well liked, but there were simply no categories in which “American Hustle” deserved a win. It’s competition was far too strong.
