Gravity Wins Big at 2014 Oscars With Seven Awards

By Gerald Lynch on at

Tense sci-fi special effects extravaganza Gravity took one giant leap for 3D filmmaking last night, becoming the big winner at last night's 2014 Academy Awards ceremony.

The space disaster flick picked up seven awards, including best cinematography, film editing, original score, sound editing, sound mixing, visual effects and the coveted best director prize for Alfonso Cuaron. The Brit-based production was already riding high off the back of a series of wins at the Baftas in London, though the Oscars remain the most-highly sought after gongs in all of Hollywood.

12 Years a Slave was the other big winner, picking up the best picture award, arguably the most important of all of the night's awards. Check out a full list of the winners over at IMDB.
