The 85th Annual Academy Awards: Everybody Wins! [Winners List]

It was THE biggest night for movies and it seemed like everybody was happy with the results! Argo won Best Picture while Daniel Day Lewis created history as he scored his third Best Actor Academy Award.

Other big winners were Jennifer Lawrence who stumbled on stage as she received her first-ever Oscar for Best Actress (Silver Linings Playbook), Anne Hathaway for Best Supporting Actress (Les Miserables), Ang Lee for Best Director (Life of Pi) and Christoph Waltz for Best Supporting Actor (Django Unchained).

Host Seth MacFarlane brought his funny antics to the Oscars that I felt like I was watching a special Family Guy episode.  One of my favorite and funny highlights of the night was the introduction of the Von Trapp family, similar to the classic movie Sound of Music.  Of course the family was not present because apparently they “left.”

It was also a night for music as Adele performed her Oscar-winning song Skyfall, while the cast of Les Miserables joined on stage for a tribute to Musicals.  Catherine Zeta-Jones relived her Chicago performance and Jennifer Hudson brought the house down as she reprises her Oscar-winning performance And I Am Telling You.

Here are the rest of the Oscar Winners:
