And the 2013 awards season comes to an end, with the Academy Awards giving its top prize, Best Picture, to Steve McQueen’s well-deserved “12 Years a Slave.” It had been a nail-biter, with “12 Years” battling it out all the way ’til the end of Oscar night with Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity.” Cuaron took Best Director, a tick in that film’s pro column, but perhaps the big prize had been decided earlier in the evening, when Lupita Nyon’go edged out Jennifer Lawrence for the equally tight Best Supporting Actress race, a major sign that the Academy loved “12 Years.”

Elsewhere, the other big winners include Cate Blanchett winning Best Actress for “Blue Jasmine,” Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor and Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor, both for “Dallas Buyers Club.” “12 Years” also took home Best Adapted Screenplay for John Ridley, adapting from Solomon Northrup’s autobiography of the same name, while Spike Jonze won Best Original Screenplay for “Her.”

Really, the night was all about this selfie:
