The Academy Awards are being handed out tonight, which means that the best of the best that movies had to offer in 2013 are being honored. While some of the films we’re seeing tonight have ben talked about to death, others are lesser known but still just as good. In total, there are 23 awards handed out tonight, and those 23 names will forever be immortalized in cinema history.

The biggest Oscar of the night was handed out to the best picture of the year, and there were plenty of worthy candidates this year — perhaps more so than ever. It was a tight race to the finish but the moment was heavily suggesting that one specific film was going to walk away with the Oscar.

12 Years a Slave –WINNER
