2014 Oscar Winner List

Too shocked to see best Actor, Actress, also supporting cast! “Matthew McConaughey” & “Cate Blanchett” is obviously super talented, but when you compare them with “Christian Bale” in “American Hustle” or “Leonardo DiCaprio” in “The Wolf of Wall Street” (I have not seen last one yet, but the way my friends are talking about it ….), Come on!

Sorry Bale, Sorry DiCaprio, but you won our heart!
