Oscar Wins for 12 Years and Spike Jonze

12 Years a Slave, easily the best film of the year and one of the most powerful stories ever told on film, won the Academy Award tonight for Best Picture.  Congratulations to the Academy for getting it right this year.

Congratulations too to Spike Jonze, a much deserved win for Best Original Screenplay — just when the 2nd-best movie of the year Her was looking like it would get shut out.

Also — what was with all the shots to Joseph Gordon-Levitt?  Why was he even there?  Was the Academy trying to compensate for its snub of Don Jon?
