We’ll send you a rundown of the top five stories every day

The Best Actor award was anyone's to win tonight but it went to Matthew McConaughey continuing the year of the McConaughey combeack story (think, Mud, Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective AND Dallas Buyers Club). McConaughey proved that none of that success had changed him when during his acceptance speech he fell right back into the lilting southern dude drawl we all know and love him for. 

The other nominees in the category were:

Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years A Slave
Idris Elba, Mandela
Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips
Robert Redford, All Is Lost
