It came as a shock to many after John Ridley won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for his work on 12 Years a Slave, chose not to thank director Steve McQueen during his acceptance speech. 

In return when McQueen won Best Picture award, he hugged most of the people around him, but not Ridley. He also did not include Ridley amongst the people he thanked.

According to Hollywood reporter Nikki Finke, the two are having a dispute. 'My sources attributing John Ridley-Steve McQueen cold shoulder at Oscars tonight to dispute over screenplay credit.' 

Meanwhile, filmmaker Sanjay Gupta defend the director and tweeted: 'This John Ridley did not acknowledge the director. He did not even acknowledge him while walking unto the stage.'
