Sir Alex Ferguson described the Oscar winners as "all correct", as the legendary former Manchester United manager attended last night's ceremony in Los Angeles in his first high-profile post retirement public appearance.

The Scot even revealed that he gave Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong'o some words of encouragement at a party in Beverly Hills the night prior, revealing that her film 12 Years a Slave was a particular favourite of his.

"I was chatting to Lupita [Nyong'o] and wished her all the best and she won", he said.

Fergie also revealed that he was largely in agreement with the awards given out on the night.

"Yes, 12 Years A Slave was a great movie. Matt McConaughey's performance in Dallas Buyers Club was sensational, so I think the awards were correct", Ferguson was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.

He also said that American Hustle was "good" and that he enjoyed Captain Phillips even though it wasn't in the running for the awards. He also stated that he was hoping to meet with last year's Best Actor winner Daniel Day Lewis, adding: "I think he's a great actor."

Fergie admitted his reasoning for attending was down to his newfound free time. "I'm retired and I've got time on my hands now", he said.

Reports that current Manchester United manager David Moyes was the guest of honour at the previous night's Golden Raspberry Awards cannot be confirmed at this time.
