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. Seth McFarlane was so painfully unfunny. Worst host ever, and he made the joke himself. I’m so over his “look how offensive I can be” schtick. It’s one thing to take digs at Hollywood like Ricky Gervais, it’s another to just take easy pot-shots about race, gender, etc. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey would have been much better choices.

    The best part of the show was the performances. That was the only thing that kept it above water.

    • Yeah, he was as boring as Argo in places!

  2. Love that Argo Won, the best movie of the year!!

    • Yeah, those multiple F-bombs are awesome!

  3. I honestly think The Hobbit got snubbed for makeup. Even if it wasn’t the best movie of the year, the production values were outstanding.

    • Agree! Hobbit snubbed! The Intouchables totally SNUBBED

    • really? I didn’t see alot of stellar makeup work in the hobbit, well theres the dwarves. but everything else was just CGI. I do believe it got snubbed for visual effects however. I haven’t seen Life of Pi in its entirety tho, so my opinion is hardly impartial.

  4. I’m really happy Argo won even though I wanted Django to win.

  5. The Hobbit got snubbed. Period.

  6. Yey Ang Lee won and so did Argo… I’m also glad Daniel Day Lewis won as its not often he’s nominated for an Oscar is it?

  7. Les Miserables for Sound Mixing is bogus. The sound was mixed terribly for the film. I understand that live singing is a challenge to mix, but it is possible. I work as a projectionist and can tell you all theaters had to make special adjustments to their sound systems to get the audio to a decent level.

    Wreck-it Ralph should have won best animated feature, but the academy will recognize Christopher Nolan before they do a movie about video game characters.

    Seth was a fantastic host. I’d rather see someone who takes risks than pander to the general audience.

  8. As a fan of Seth Macfarlane, I was pretty disappointed. There were some hilarious moments, but as a whole it felt lacking and forced (almost as if he knew what he was saying wasn’t at all funny). In fact, it felt more like the Comedy Central roasts (where it’s just insult after insult to get “shock-laughs”), than actual comedy… comedy, which imo, Seth is more than capable of doing.
    The 50th anniversary of ‘Bond’-bit seemed like it could have been done better as well.

    My issues with the winners are as follows:
    1. Ben Affleck got snubbed for directing! He should have won, but he wasn’t even nominated.
    2. Costume Design should have gone to Les Mis or Lincoln.
    3. The Hobbit was robbed of the Make-up, as well as the Production Design award.
    4. Life of Pi’s score was one of the things I actually didn’t like about the movie – Thomas Newman or John Williams deserved the award more imo.
    5. Sound editing should be Skyfall’s and Skyfall’s alone. No, I haven’t seen Zero Dark Thirty yet, but that’s the way I feel dammit! ;)
    6. And of course, the fact that TDKR wasn’t nominated for a single award, yet Snow White and the friggin Huntsman was, can only be described as criminal.

    …other than that lol, I’m happy with the results. All the winning actors in their respective categories deserve their award (especially Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence). Best original screenplay going to Tarantino was great and seeing Searching For Sugar Man take home the award for best documentary was awesome as well.

    As for best picture, out of all the movies I saw, it would be impossible for me to choose the best. I loved Argo, Django, Life of Pi and Les Mis equally, for very different reasons. Over the weekend I got to see Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook as well, and imo, they were fantastic too. Lincoln felt like it was trying too much (i.e. “Oscar bait”), but it was still very good. And Silver Linings Playbook was without a doubt the best romantic comedy/drama I’ve ever seen.

    2012 was a great year for movies, that’s for sure.

    • I wish I could disagree with u about Seth because Im a huge fan but he did disappoint IMO.

      • Who is Seth anyway? If he is supposed to be funny … he failed! But, so did the academy as usual. The really talented cast was Les Miserables. The Argo cast could drop the F-bomb like no other! Go F-bombs! So “California interesting!”

    • TDKR didn’t deserve any Awards. It was the same thing as The Dark Knight just worse.

      • Well that’s your opinion.
        Personally, I think the movie had great cinematography and should have gotten a nod for sound editing as well.

        • Agreed dark knight rises trumped its predecessor in every technical catigory which the dark knight won

        • sound editing? when i seen it in theaters, each time i went which was twice, i couldn’t make out what everything Bane was saying throughout the film.

          • …well, that’s true… but aside from Bane it was great ;)

            • I could hear Bane just fine even on the bootlegged original intro before they made his voice higher pitched because people were complaining.

              I like TDKR, but man, Bane sounded better in the original intro.

              Technically, TDKR was awesome.

              Story wise…decent, for what it is. Possibly the most comic book-ish of all the three, Tale of Two Cities inspirations aside, but the pit scene was awesome. It makes the trilogy. At least the movies TRY to be more than standard comic book fare. You have to give Nolan credit.

              Not surprised it wasn’t considered; no one popular died before release.

              Yes, I said it. Heath was amazing, but I doubt he would have been considered if he lived. Sad fact. :(.

    • I mainly agree with on everything. I am pretty much on the same page except the fact that I have only seen Argo of the major movies nominated.

      I will just add Looper to the list of snubbed. The Dark Knight Rises could have been nominated for at least one award. I liked TDKR but with much reservation so I am not overly concerned with it, but just one would not have sufficed. The Avengers got one.

    • I enjoyed MacFarlene. He had some tasteless jokes now and then but his musical numbers were great, and I love that he could make fun of himself in the opening bit. Am I begging to see him host again? No, but it was somewhat entertaining. I think the whole ceremony this year lacked the kind of Grand Nature that the show has tried to make the last few years (albeit maybe a little too hard).

      I agree with points 2. 3. and 4. 5. Zero Dark Thirty was good too. It needed to win something lol. 1. I just still can’t take Affleck seriously as a director especially when he plays the main character in the movie as well. Argo was good, but my personal opinion is that that is in spite of Affleck, not because of him.

      • Oh yeah 6. DKR wasn’t as good as DK in any kind of Award category so I’m not shocked that it wasn’t nominated…

  9. I thought Argo was very thin, if that’s what constitutes best movie…, the others in the category must be dreadful. The subject matter won it an oscar, not the actually film, because everything about it felt like a mediochre episode of ncis. and yeah, I thought the 007 tribute fell short, and too many songs… chicago? who cares? Seth’s approach tried to be traditional old-fashioned hollywood song and dance, but it just felt old-fashioned and sloppy. Why praise the directors or producers, the show was a mess. bad editing and everything important jammed into the last 30 min.

    • Argo was heavy on the F-bomb, which is so Californian. The academy couldn’t live without it! It was almost boring in parts, except they would throw an F-bomb in there and POW I’m awake! So hip and Californian!

      • Oh give it up already!! So you don’t like F-bombs! STOP commenting on EVERY SINGLE POST ABOUT ARGO with this ridiculous reply.

  10. Oh, and another thing that bugged me was the ‘Jaws’ theme they played when the speeches got too long. That was incredibly obnoxious and rude (even more so than cutting off the mic).
    There are better ways of signaling to the speaker that his/her time is up than a song associated with death and horror.

    • They do signal the speaker off camera first. But sometimes it wasn’t enough so I thought the Jaws theme was great!

      • As I understand it, there are people and monitors off camera showing how much time the speaker has left to finish his/her speech, and if the speaker goes over their speech limit, they used to play… gentle music and gradually lowered the mic volume if the speaker went over his/her limit.
        This year, however, they took a very abrasive and rude approach. Tasteless and disrespectful imo.

        • Wow.

          Am I ever glad I missed out. Turns out I didn’t miss much.

  11. Seth Mcfarlane truly was boring. I thought he would’ve knocked it out of the park. Love jennifier lawerance’s fall when she won best actress.

    • He was as interesting as Argo! If he could have dropped the F-bomb like Argo, it would have helped! So interestingly California!

  12. I only care so much about the Oscar picks normally, but seriously?
    The Hobbit didn’t win Hair and Makeup?

    That movie is 90% hair!

    Lol, but seriously, I do think it ought to have won. They managed to make a cast of 13+ characters visually distinct, and distinct as characters, on mostly the strength of the hair and makeup alone. That’s an achievement in my books. The artistry required to do that really deserved recognition.

    • It won 3 other times for lotr the film wasnt on par with its predecessors in the makeup and hair catigory because the replaced real orcs witg cg

  13. I loved that Argo won Best Picture. Silver Linings Playbook was my favorite film of 2012, but Argo was great too. I’m really amazed at Ben Affleck’s career revival. Remember his acting choices in the 2000s? History will remember him as a 2-time Oscar winner. Amazing. He really should have won Best Director.

    The Tarantino win pleasantly surprised me. I was really excited to see him up there getting the Oscar. I knew Django had no chance of winning Best Picture, so I was happy to see it win for something.

    Christoph Waltz is the man. I would have voted for De Niro in that category, but Waltz is awesome. He’s a great actor.

    Very deserving win by Jennifer Lawrence. I thought she was breathtaking in Silver Linings. And she’s easy on the eyes too ;)

    The tie was just weird. Never seen that happen before.

    As a big Nolan fan, I would have liked to have seen TDKR get nominated for some technical awards. I can understand not nominating it for Best Picture (though I would have liked to have seen that or Skyfall in there to round out an even 10), but Visual Effects and Original Score should have been a lock for a nomination.

    • Has this ever happened before?

      More and more, I feel the Oscars are a big joke. The awards only serve to help whoever get more and better jobs but I think that, secretly, a lot of them realise how silly it all is.

      • Yes, it has happened before. Most famous, 1968 Best Actress – Barbra Steisand for Funny Girl, and Kahterine Hepburn for The Lion In Winter.

        Winners Announced: April 14, 1969
        Held at: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles, California
        Host: no one
        Eligibility Year: 1968

  14. So I have a sort of mixed feeling after the show. Bits and pieces were entertaining and such but then there were others I was kind of falling asleep. However the latter may be a direct consequence of how long the Oscars been going by that time.

    If one has been following the trends of who won what in a specific category throughout award seasons then one had an idea who the winners were going to be–at least in the most major awards. I think the only award that could have gone different ways was Best Director–mainly because Ben Affleck was not nominated in the role and he has in all the other award shows I have seen.

    I think Seth tried to do the best he could and that he was honestly flabbergasted that he is the one hosting the Oscars. Honestly I do not have a huge complaint about him. His jokes were hit-or-miss but overall he could have gone with more extreme or tasteless jokes but he really knew his place and time. It was obvious that he was not ideal choice for a host in his own opinion and he just ran with it. He actually tried to make the show bearable when he realized the show was running long. Seth did a decent job for what he was expected to do and classy in a way. Definitely could have been worse when all things considered.

    Couple of Thoughts:

    -Brave: I have not seen all the other nominations in this category and while I enjoyed Brave I did not think that Brave was the best it could have been.

    -Looper: This film should have at least been nominated in areas such as make-up and original screenplay. At least in those two areas. I believed the film was one of the best films in the year that is not political and just blockbuster fancy.

    -It was fun watching the cast of the Avengers.

    -James Bond tribute could have been done better.

    -Winners were predictable for most part. No real surprises. But they were all deserving no less. And this year was actually tough overall in sheer competition.

  15. I hope Sally Field gets nominated

  16. What I’ll remember from these Oscars is the amazing musical number with the cast of Les Misérables, fantastic animation for when Wahlberg and Ted walked on stage to present an award, and the fact that Kristen Stewart just looked as if she was bored half to death and just wished she was elsewhere, as usual, even stumbling in her dress, even more than Jennyfer Lawrence.
    Seth MacFarlane did an okay job, although he did remind me of Ricky Gervais with his schtick comedy, but I did think that Seymour Hoffman was robbed of the oscar for Best supporting actor.
    Anne Hathaway was a dead givaway to win best supporting actress, but still, she deserved it.

    • Totally agree! So much talent! Even Russell Crowe whom one would not think was a heavy weight talent. The academy made idiots of themselves again!

  17. Kinda pleased at how the awards seemed pretty spread out – pleasantly surprised to see Ang Lee get the Best Director statue; the book after all was not easy to adapt. Feels a little like Zero Dark Thirty seriously got the shaft, given the amount of critical praise it earned – proof that political controversy can damage the merits of a film, I suppose.

    But the snubs were still pretty annoying. Affleck not getting a directing nod was pretty embarrassing. I think Roger Deakins really deserved an Oscar for Skyfall, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why Argo was nominated for Best Original Score when Cloud Atlas wasn’t (I can’t even remember what the soundtrack sounded like for Argo). Also a cinematography nod for TDKR would’ve been nice, although I agree that it doesn’t really deserve a Best Pic nod or nominations in most of the other major categories.

    Here’s a thought I read somewhere else: is it really fair that Life of Pi can get a nod for cinematography when so much of it was CGI or CG-enhanced? On the one hand you could say that since so much of it isn’t ‘real’, it’s not really to the credit of the cinematographer. On the other, you might argue that it doesn’t matter what was shot – all that matters is what you see in the end. Personally, I might’ve let it keep the nomination, but I would’ve given Skyfall the win on that one.

  18. The Dark Knight Rises not nominated for anything, so I did not watch. This is just an artsy fartsy award show. And Denzel should have won best actor! Hey I’m a rich movie star award me my life is so great and yours is not and Obama don’t even take me more than the middle class cause I’m Hollywood!

  19. I meant tax missed the typo LOL!

  20. Waltz seemed to act in similar ways for both i.b. and d.u. TLJ should have won.

    • @Justin

      Tommy Lee Jones was fantastic in Lincoln…

  21. My main thought is that “Brave” was not a good enough film to win best animated feature. However, I did not see “Wreck-It Ralph,” and it seems to have been a thin year for the animated category. Again, though, I found “Brave” quite disappointing as an overall film, and do not believe that it deserved an award for anything other than its technological merits in terms of CGI rendering.

  22. The highs IMO…
    1. The Les Mis performance. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie but the cast nailed it last night. And a bravo to Russel Crowe for showing up even though he’s been slammed the past few months.
    2. Ben Affleck’s speech. Emotional and true.
    3. Most of the wins went to who was deserving. No real surprises or upsets.
    The Lows IMO…
    1. The Bond tribute. The performance of Goldfinger was great but without the actors who played Bond being there it felt flat.
    2. 95% of MacFarlene’s act. The monologue was to long. If they cut everything besides the Shatner bit it would have been better.
    3. The same age old argument. The show is just to long. I’m sorry but they need to move the shorts and documentary catagorys to a separate event. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate short films and I watch a ton of documentaries but 95% of the viewers watching the Oscars don’t.

  23. I won’t go into the winners so much other than saying if you told me last year that Ang Lee would win Best Director and a movie directed by and starring Ben Affleck would win best picture, I would have laughed in your face…

    Let’s stick to the show itself. I think this year’s show was really missing something. It lacked the grand nature that the show has at least attempted to make the last few years and I found many of the musical numbers boring, even for songs I liked. Plus it ran really long, and I can’t figure out exactly how that happened. I think not having the Orchestra in house was a mistake, and shouldn’t be done again. As for MacFarlene hosting, his jokes were really hit and miss. I loved the opening bit with the saw your boobs song because that is the kind of song that the creator of Family Guy would sing if he had free reign, so I’m glad they could kid around about it. Overall it was lacking and not the kind of Oscar show that I expect.

  24. Only 3 things to say.

    Thought the emcee was terrible.

    Hugh Jackman totally robbed (okay I might be biased being an Aussie and all)

    Brave was a great movie but I was kind of hoping that Pirates, Band of Misfits might win.

    • One) yes
      Two) yes
      Three) no
      Les Miserables was by far the BEST.
      (In a very long time, but academy lives the F-bomb, therefore Argo wins)

    • One) yes
      Two) yes
      Three) no
      Les Miserables was by far the BEST.

    • @emrald

      Pirates was pretty bad… I saw that for free and even then it wasn’t worth it, lol. :-D

      My opinion of course…

  25. I didnt like The Jaws stuff either .
    If Affleck had been nominated for Best Director,
    Argo would have lost Best Picture .

  26. Hi, my name is Ken, and I like cheese…

    (I just want to see how Roughliterature will find a way to relate this to Argo and how it only won because of the f-bomb…)

  27. I don’t have a lot of familiarity with Seth McFarlane but I thought he was brilliant.

    I was so disappointed that Hugh Jackman did not get best actor.

    Les Mis was so good. I’ve seen it 7 times now and will likely see it again.

    • wOW, appreciate it Chris. I should also be viewing it soon, saw a clip , must say was fab. If not for a classic would have got the best motion picture and Hugh Jackman another fave…maybe next time…All the best Chris…
