As aired at ABC on Sunday night, “Argo” won the Best Picture award, despite the fact that its director Ben Affleck was not nominated for Best Director. “Life of Pi” won 4 awards, including Best Cinematography and Best Director for Ang Lee. “Les Miserables” won 3 awards, including Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway.
Jack Nicholson, along with US First Lady Michelle Obama, who was at the White House, introduced the nominees and the winner of the Best Picture award. “Argo” also won the Best Film Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay awards, while “Django Unchained” won Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz.
On the other hand, Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress Award for her role in the movie “Silver Linings Playbook.” Daniel Day Lewis won the Best Actor award for “Lincoln,” which also won the Best Production Direction award.
Meanwhile, this year’s Oscars also paid tribute to the 50 years of James Bond movies and their music, as introduced on stage by former Bond girl Halle Berry. Iconic singer Shirley Bassey sang “Goldfinger,” which is being considered as among the great songs from Bond films. As well-deserved, she earned a standing ovation.
Later, the 2013 Oscars paid tribute to Oscar-winning musical films, where Catherine Zeta-Jones reprised on stage her role in the 2002 film Chicago, where she won the Oscars‘ Best Supporting Actress award. Jennifer Hudson sang songs from “Dreamgirls,” where she also won the Oscars‘ Best Supporting Actress award in 2007. The cast of “Les Miserables” also performed on stage.
But of course, not to mention the stunning performance of the “unstoppable” Adele, who sang “Skyfall,” the theme song of the 2012 James Bond movie with the same title. As expected, the 24-year old multi-Grammy Awards winner received a standing ovation. The song later won the Oscars‘ Best Original Song award.
Below is the complete list of winners for the 85th Academy Awards.
