Gire, suburbanites celebrate Oscar in Wheaton

Though Daily Herald Film Critic Dann Gire called this year's Academy Award nominee field one of the "tightest, toughest" he's ever seen, it turned out pretty much the way he thought it would. That includes his prediction that "12 Years a Slave" would win Best Picture over eight other films. "Each one could have won during a regular year," Gire said at an Oscar party Sunday night in Wheaton. "But '12 Years a Slave' was absolutely horrifying, courageous and just a splendid example of the motion picture artform."
