Steve McQueen had a pretty good weekend. His latest film, 12 Years a Slave earned 3 Oscars on Sunday, for adapted screenplay, best supporting actress, and best picture. Having only been making feature films for 6 years, that’s not too shabby. McQueen kicked off his feature film career with Hunger, about an IRA activist’s well-publicized 1981 hunger strike, and followed it up with Shame, a film that “examines the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.”

In addition to directing intelligent, thought-provoking films, Steve McQueen seems to have a fully realized sense of style, which he proudly showcases. According to Deadline, McQueen will next be working on a “major drama” for the BBC. Though many details haven’t been released, if his previous output is any indication, the show will be something we won’t want to miss.
