Ever since AMPAS increased the number of eligible films for Best Picture nominations in 2008, this ceremony resulted in the highest number of "shut-outs" for the Best Picture nominees as of 2014. The five out the nine nominated films that didn't receive a single Oscar were: American Hustle (2013), Captain Phillips (2013), Philomena (2013), Nebraska (2013), and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).

Herself - Co-Winner: Best Makeup and Hairstyling:
Thank you so much to the Academy. My goodness, you all fought for the hair and makeup of this film. You fought for it and even fulfilled every dream we've ever had. To our friends and family, thank you. To Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, thank you so much for letting us transform and torture you through a million, bazillion hair and makeup changes a day, and for your support with our makeup. Jean-Marc Vallée, you are a visionary. You are so amazing. And thank you for choosing the two of us ...

Bad direction! Missed many emotional times. Camera always panning away from the most touching moments. Would have been nice to share those with the actors, that are indeed unscripted. For example, watching Judy Garlands kids, watch their late mother in her prime, would have been a sight to have been seen. As the camera switched to another celebrity who was applauding (w/o emotion) to Pinks performance, the camera missed Judy's girls crying and having a moment that only they could share, allowing us a small look into these girls/women of a legend. Ellen, was neither on nor off. I would still say she was a success. The pizza was a GREAT idea. (Was the guy in on it, did he know he was coming into the theater?) Loved how they didn't play off the acceptance speeches. Speaking on behalf of the east coast, move it an hour ahead. We "non Hollywood people" do have to work the next day. Please consider.
