85th academy awards Academy Awards 2013: Oscar Winners List   Did Your Favorites Win?

This year Seth MacFarlane will be taking over for Billy Crystal as host of the 85th Academy Awards, where the famed Family Guy creator will attempt to be the song and dance man capable of appeasing the many award show critics. And of course, the battle for Hollywood’s coveted award, the Oscar, will be won or lost this evening.

After being snubbed for a Best Director nomination, will Ben Affleck go on to take home the Best Picture award for Argo? Will Daniel Day Lewis’s method transformation in to 16th President of the United States in Stephen Spielberg’s Lincoln bring him his third Oscar? After a much-too-long awards show, those questions will be answered.

Fortunately, you don’t have to sit through all the weird and/or boring speech, as we’ll be providing you with a live updated list of all of the winners as they’re announced.

  1. I loved “Brave” but found “Frankenweeine” a much better, more interesting film.

    • Yea, while I thoroughly enjoyed it, Brave was fourth choice on my list.

    • I agree, Frankenweeine was a much better movie. The problem is that Hollywood does not like Tim Burton.

      • Amen. Well said.

    • I think the fact that it was a Pixar film is the only reason it wins.

    • Wreck It Ralph > All of them

      • Agreed every film nominated was better than brave imo

        • Have to completely agree with you guys. Apart from Cars 1 and 2 I thought Brave was by far Pixars weakest film, can’t believe it won Best won, the other nominations were far superior

    • Love that Brave won!!

    • Frankenweenie was great, but I have to disagree with you guys. Brave totally deserved this one. Yeah, there were rougher elements than some other Pixar films, but Brave was my personal favorite Pixar film thus far.

  2. LMAO Billion dollar box office trumps best movie nomination

  3. I’d say Paranorman was robbed, but of what? The approval of some out-of-touch rest home attendees?

    • lol…THAT is why I’m finding out the winners here…Spending that time is a waste of effort for me.

  4. Where is the winners list?

  5. Shirley Bassey killed it!!

    She’s 76!

    The rest of the Oscars sucked (so far)….. Seth MacFarlane is not funny. And I hated that song and dance routine with JGL and Daniel Radcliffe. All geared to entertain the Geritol set.

    • I disagree mcfarlande is doing a fine job best host we have had in a long time

    • I too agree that Seth MacFarlane stinks, just like his movie Ted. He is not funny, but maybe it is the jokes.

      • boooo…

    • After hearing my mother saying Seth wasn’t funny, I’ve come to the conclusion that the haters are either old or humorless.

      • I thought Seth did a great job.

    • @Heustis

      I agree, he’s pretty boring… I’d rather see Billy Crystal host again than this guy that thinks he’s funny…

    • I disagree 100%. McFarlane was hilarious and I don’t even like Family Guy.

    • Agree Seth doesn’t funny at all. Oscar should replace with Tiny Fey and Amy instead Seth. Even I love Family Guy and Ted but I disappoint on his hosting job.

      • Tina Fey is a tired hack.

        • Amy Poehler is less tired.

  6. I love waltz but an award for the same type of role. I woulda gave it to hoffman

    • I agree, Waltz is a one dimensional actor. Tommy Lee Jones or Hoffman should have won.

      • He´s not not a dimensional actor, he´s a victim of type-casting.

        • Correct scapegoat typecasting indeed

          • But a damn good typecast! Hahaha

        • I have seen Christopher in a couple of German films (Tatort – Wunschlos tot and Herr Lehmann), and the Three Musketeers (Cardinal Richelieu), and he was the same as was in Django and Inglorius Bastards.

    • Hoffman wasn’t nominated…did you even watch the show?

      • Phillip Seymour Hoffman was nominated. Did YOU even watch the show?

        • I’m sure he was thinking of Dustin Hoffman, not Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

    • Same type? You obviously don’t know how to comprehend a performance.

    • Agree 100%. Hoffman was infinitely better.

  7. WHAT? A TIE???

  8. How exactly do you “tie”? Shouldn’t they have some sort of tie breaker? Like first one to the stage gets the Oscar?

  9. Is it just me or is this one of the most boring Oscars ever?

    • It was just you.

      • I don’t think so, look at the reviews being posted about this Oscar show.

    • The next Oscars are always the most boring ones, because we’ve seen them so often and they are always the same. Everything that you do over and over and over and over and that’s not that interesting to begin with gets more boring every single time. No host in the world will change that.

  10. Who does everyone think will win Best Actress? It’s probably the most unsure of all the big awards left. I think it’ll be Jennifer Lawrence, but there was no COMPLETE standout so it’s tough to say.

    • Emanualle riva upset!

      • I’d say either her or Lawrence. I’ll be mad if Chastain wins. She was really good, but not GREAT like those two.

  11. Glad Paperman won
    Sad Wreck It Ralph lost.
    Some boring picks for best pic this year.

  12. What did you think of Adelle’s singing? I thought she was off and the orchestra drowned her out.

  13. I love Barbra, but Dame Shirley out sung her.

  14. Congrats for Catwoman! Sad that Ralph didn’t come as the winner, but it’s short movie Paperman won.
    Shirley Bassie > Barbra S > Adele… experience does make it better perhaps? Oh, but congrats for Adele winning the Oscar

  15. Something about these Oscars…lacked. A lot.

    • SUPER long. It’s 11:30 and they have the four biggest awards still. Way, WAY too long.

      • It goes by faster if youre watching walking dead,
        and then talking dead,
        and then bake a pizza,
        and make lemon jello,
        at least thats what I did.

        • HAHAHA sadly, I skipped Walking Dead for this..

          • You didn’t miss much

            • Lemon Jello is everything!!!!!

  16. I am so over Quentin Tarantino. And, Argo winning for adapted screenplay was a travesty; talk about rewriting history. Argo’s ending was pure fiction, ask the Canadian’s about what really happened.

    • I feel the same way about Tarantino.

  17. Look at Spielberg…he was so ready to get up and laugh at Ben…Good for Ang! He is such a great filmmaker…

  18. Well…Question answered. Who is the best Actor of all time.

    Daniel Day Lewis.

    First Actor to win 3 Best Actor Oscars.

    • +1

    • And a well deserved 3rd one tonight, at that. He was amazing as Lincoln.

    • I couldn’t agree more.I’d bet he could make drinking a glass of water for two hours look more interesting than most actors in normal roles.

      The guy is a screen god!

    • Which is kinda amazing, considering his totally overacted Robert De Niro impression that he delivered in Gangs of New York. I guess one way to make sure you win an Oscar is squinting your eyes and making a frowny mouth a lot. Too bad Karl Urban had to wear a helmet in Dredd. Had we seen his eyes he would have won the award. 😀

      • Too bad they rewrote history for Lincoln.

        • How?

      • I actually thought DDL deserved an oscar for Gangs of New York!

  19. YEAHHHH!!!! Zero Dark Thirty SHUT OUT!!! HA!

    • It actually won Best Sound Editing.

      • Drat!

  20. Man I know it’s all politics but it’ still really frustrating to watch. Argo best adapted screen play AND best Picture? So frustrating

  21. Glad to see lincoln not take picture or a director, thats what should happen to films that are pure oscar bait. In other words argo was to ficticous for my liking, expetially being a declassified story.

    • Seeing everyone’s comments, can everyone agree that its ridiculous how much politics comes into an award ceremony for FILM? Why can’t anything be what it is meant to be, and not bring that political crap into EVERYTHING?

      • Agreed other trey

        • Because they’re presenting American mythos as FACTUAL HISTORY.

  22. Argo deserved it.

  23. i dont care about oscars! for me My preciouss The Hobbit for every nominee!

  24. So upset Emanuel Riva didn’t win
    A French handing another French the Oscar would have been so epic !!!!!
    And the audience would have sung her an happy birthday ….

    Amour, life of pi and cloud atlas were the best movie of last year

  25. Argo deserved it all the way :)

  26. Oscars are losing credibility and going the way of the Grammys- rewarding what is popular over what is good.

    -Philip Seymour Hoffman was robbed. His transformation into the layered, complex psycho The Master was phenomenal. Cristoph Waltz was just meh in Django Unchained. Nothing Oscar-worthy at all about his performance. And if Hoffman didn’t get it, then Tommy Lee Jones should have.

    -No way Django Unchained should have won Best screenplay. It was too long and meandering, the plot was absurd, and some scenes should have just been cut. It was like a screenplay written by a 16 year-old kid. Entertaining yes, but a travesty to even be nominated for an Oscar.

    Other than those travesties, it was ok. Still too many nominees for Best Picture- should go back to 4 or 5. Glad Ang Lee won- Life of Pi was a masterpiece.

    Daniel Day-Lewis was well-deserved, although Joaquin Phoenix was just as good, if not slightly better than day-Lewis. I don’t think he’s been given enough credit for his performance in The Master. It was amazingly good.

    • Well what more can I say, everyone has different opinions and I can’t disagree with you anymore.

  27. Hal needham gets his Oscar
    Cannonball run f$cking rules and finally gets the Oscar it always deserved

  28. LOOPER SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOMINATED FOR ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY AND SHOULD HAVE WON THAT. IMO that’s the most creative story all year. And adapted should have been Cloud Atlas (not nominated either), just for the ambition and effort that went into such a complex novel.

  29. I thought seth was entertaining. Argo definitely deserved to win along with Jennifer and Anne. Overall a pretty good reward show.
