'12 Years A Slave' has triumphed at this year's Oscars, winning Best Film for producers Steve McQueen and Brad Pitt.

The gruelling 19th century story of Solomon Northup, abducted and sold into slavery, also directed by McQueen, also won Oscars for Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong'o, and Adapted Screenplay for John Ridley.

'Gravity' was, however, the big winner of the night, taking home seven awards from 10 nominations, including two gongs for Alfonso Cuaron, for directing and for editing the outer-space drama, starring Sandra Bullock on her own for the majority of the film.

Heavily nominated films 'American Hustle' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street' both went home empty-handed.

Other winners on Hollywood's biggest night of the year included Cate Blanchett ('Blue Jasmine') and Matthew McConaughey ('Dallas Buyers Club') for Best Actress and Actor in a Leading Role. Jared Leto won for Best Supporting Actor, also for 'Dallas Buyers Club'.
