Oscars 2013 Highlights Winners and Scoop: The biggest and most anticipated night of the year was as happening as expected, when the winners of the 2013 Oscars were awarded with their gold statues. The 85th Academy Awards took place in the midst of much fervor and excitement, with stars like Adele and Barbara Streisand taking the stage to perform.
The list of winners was indeed a very glamorous and deserving one this year – to start with, 22 year old Jennifer Lawrence took home the Best Actress Oscar (even though there was a 9 year old nominee as well!). Argo beat big films like Lincoln and Life of Pi to get the coveted Best Picture Oscar.
The 2013 Academy Awards were hosted by Seth MacFarlane. The night kicked off after Anne Hathaway swept away a much deserving Oscar (Best Supporting Actress) for her mind blowing performance is Les Miserables. She beat actresses like Amy Adams, Sally Field, and Helen Hunt.
The Oscar for the Best Actor in a supporting role went to Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained. Others in the running for the same title included Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones.
Jennifer Lawrence accepted her Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook in a rather dramatic way. The young actress tripped on her way to the stage and reminded us of a similar past event – remember her recent dress malfunction at the Golden Globes?
Lawrence tripped while climbing the stage in a rather gigantic yet drool-worthy ball gown by Dior Haute Couture.
The actress beat 9 year old Quvenzhané Wallis who was nominated for her role in Beasts of Southern Wild; she was the youngest Best Actress nominee of all time.
Lastly, the Best Actor Oscar went to Daniel Day Lewis for Lincoln – a much applauded win. Daniel beat Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables), another front runner for the award.
Life of Pi won four awards in total (Best Director, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects), which was a small disappointment compared to the staggering 11 nominations it received. Find the complete list of Oscar winners below.
