"12 Years a Slave" won only three awards, including best supporting actress and best adapted screenplay,while "Gravity" won seven, the most of any film:

Diversity was a leading motif for ceremony that was hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, a happy-go-lucky lesbian who spent most of the evening in a tuxedo, and which also honored Jared Leto as best supporting actor for his role as a transgender AIDS patient in "Dallas Buyers Club."  The best actress award went to Cate Blanchett for "Blue Jasmine," despite a late-season challenge by Dylan Farrow, who publicly wrote that its director Woody Allen and his films should be shunned because he had, by her account, sexually molested her as a child. Mr. Allen, her adoptive father, has strongly challenged the charge. "Thank you so much, Woody, for casting me," said Ms. Blanchett, who never mentioned the blowup, but made a point of thanking Mr. Allen for using "Blue Jasmine" to tell a woman's story. Jennifer Lawrence followed minutes later to present the best actor award to Matthew McConaughey for "Dallas Buyers Club." "Why are you laughing?" Ms. Lawrence challenged the audience, which has come to expect a trip, fall or charming faux pas every time she takes the stage. But she pulled it off without a hitch, and Mr. McConaughey thanked God and everyone else with a toothy movie star smile. John Ridley, who won the best adapted screenplay Oscar for "12 Years a Slave," invoked the suffering individual at the heart of his story. "All the praise goes to Solomon Northup," said Mr. Ridley. "These are his words, this is his life." Spike Jonze won the original script Oscar for "Her," a Warner Bros. film that had a powerful following, particularly among young viewers, who responded to its quirky story of one man's love affair with his digital operating system.

It was the only win for "Her," but that was enough to lift it above "American Hustle," which was slammed hard by the voters.

Widely seen as one of three films in contention for the top honors, it left empty-handed, a humiliation for a film with 10 nominations and one of the better box office totals, with about $146 million in ticket sales.
