Argo Is Oscar's Best Picture

Life Of Pi also does well...

Grant Heslov, Ben Affleck, George Clooney - Oscar Best Picture, Argo

After a night that most Oscar viewers would consider mixed – some moments worked, other jokes bombed or ran long – there were a few surprises and a lot of winners everyone predicted. Anne Hathaway scooped Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables (and sang on stage with the cast), Lincoln's Daniel Day-Lewis picked up Best Actor and Argo was the Best Picture.

Christoph Waltz took home another Best Supporting Actor trophy for Django Unchained and Michael Haneke was the predictable champ in the Foreign Film category.

More unexpectedly, Ang Lee won Best Director, there was a rare tie in the Sound Editing Category (between Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall) and Brave gave Pixar another win in a year when the Best Animated Feature category was fairly wide open this year.

But enough of our intro… On with the winners!
