Matthew McConaughey has won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.
The actor beat out stiff competition from Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Bruce Dern.
After kissing his wife, model Camila Alves, and shaking hands with Dallas Buyers Club co-star Jared Leto, McConaughey and DiCaprio hugged each other, suggesting there were no hard feelings between the two.
Accepting his award from 2013 Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence, the 44 year-old actor thanked the Academy and his fellow nominees: “All their performances were impeccable,” he said.
He also thanked his mother, Camila and their children and revealed that his hero is himself ten years down the line.
And while he admitted he would never actually become a hero, he said that goal gave him something to “keep chasing.”
Earlier in the evening Cate Blanchett won Best Actress, Jared Leto won Best Supporting Actor and Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress.
