In the other acting categories, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto were named Best Male Lead and Best Supporting Male for their work in Dallas Buyers Club, while Cate Blanchett received the gong for Best Female Lead for Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

2014 Independent Spirit Award Winners: '12 Years a Slave' Takes Best Picture

1 March 2014 8:31 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The night before the 2014 Oscars was a big one for 12 Years a Slave as it took home five wins at the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards including Best Picture, Director (Steve McQueen), Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o), Screenplay (John Ridley) and Cinematography (Sean Bobbitt). However, don't take this to mean 12 Years is a lock at the Oscars as its strongest competition in categories such as Picture and Director, those being Gravity and American Hustle, weren't among the "independent" nominees. Some likely Oscar winners were among the list of winners as Dallas Buyers Club co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took home Best Actor and Supporting Actor respectively. Cate Blanchett took home yet another Best Actress prize for her work in Blue Jasmine and 20 Feet from Stardom won Best Documentary, proving even the Spirit Awards weren't going for The Act of Killing, though that doesn't diminish the impact of Joshua Oppenheimer's film.
