The 10 Memorable Moments Of Oscars 2013 | 10. Affleck Accepts For Argo
10. Affleck Accepts For Argo

There were a few great speeches during the evening, at least the ones that didn’t end up swallowed by the orchestra. Adele was typically sweet and down to Earth as she picked up the award for Skyfall. Daniel Day-Lewis cracked that Lincoln was part of a job swap and that he was originally supposed to play Margaret Thatcher (with presenter Meryl Streep chuckling behind him) and Ang Lee was an effusive Best Director winner.

Jack Nicholson looked bored out of his mind at the Oscars. When everyone did a standing ovation, Jack grudgingly got to his feet...and looked bored. Sad to see his spark has gone. More
