Should've won best movie, too, imho. Plus, Sandra Bullock got robbed. Cate Blanchett best actress? Really?

How the best director doesn't have the best picture? Shouldn't the two go band in hand? :/

With that logic the best film should take home the arts of every category.

Best picture takes into account every single aspect: the writers, the actors, the director, the crew and the story as a whole. Best Director just takes the director (and their direction) into account.

Thus, best director doesn't mean best picture.
Although, it's a real shame Steve McQueen didn't get best director.

...and that is The Act Of Killing not winning Best documentary. Not only is it the best documentary I've ever seen but it's one of the most powerful and haunting films of any kind I have ever seen. It should have been up for Best Picture.

At least Jennifer Lawrence didn't win. I think she's talented, but it seems Nyong'o and Hawkins were speculated to be the bookie's favourites to win.

Like I said in the title??? I never understand why they nominate 10 movies for best picture and only 5 directors......surely 12 Years....could only BE Best Picture because of Mr.McQueen's direction??

Love Empire, but increasingly irritated by it's constant claims to "Exclusive" content/footage. Where is the exclusive footage here???
