12 Years a Slave won Best Motion Picture at the 18th annual Satellite Awards. Oscar frontrunners Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, and Jared Leto won their acting categories — but June Squibb beat out both Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence, winning Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Nebraska. Steve McQueen won Best Director for 12 Years, and David O. Russell and Eric Singer won Best Original Screenplay for American Hustle.

Last year, the International Press Academy honored The Silver Linings Playbook with Best Motion Picture, and recognized Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in the lead-actor categories. The IPA is a media association that includes journalists and bloggers.

In the television categories, Breaking Bad was named Best Drama, and Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul took home acting honors. Orange is the New Black won for Best Comedy, with Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon winning acting prizes.
