FINAL WORDS

Oscar speeches - Matthew McConaughey and Steve McQueen

Matthew McConaughey span a yarn upon picking up his Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, one that managed to cover God, his concept of himself in ten years as his hero, his late father, his family and his colleagues on the film. We were mostly wondering what his True Detective character, Rust Cohle would’ve made of it. Then it was time for the big final prize as 12 Years A Slave scored Best Picture and a delighted, humbled, historic Steve McQueen was introduced by producer Brad Pitt and gave it his all. “To all the women in my life, they're all women and they're so powerful - my mother, obviously. I'd like to thank the amazing historian, Sue Aiken, who gave her life's work to preserving Solomon's book. And everyone deserves not just to survive but to live. This is the most important legacy of Solomon Northup. I dedicate this award to all who have endured slavery and to the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today. Thank you!"
