Oscars Winners and Oscars History in the Making

By February 25, 2013

Follow me on:

Oscar Winner Daniel Day Lewis in Los Angeles

In case you weren't camped out outside The Oscars or in front of your TV, the big night happened, and some of its key players even made history--like Daniel Day-Lewis, who was the first to win Best Actor three times. Speaking of which, to find out more about the Brit-Angeleno connection here in LA, read British Los Angeles. And in the meantime, here's the top list...

Oscar Winners 2013 (Top Awards)

Best Picture: Argo

Best Director: Ang Lee (Life of Pi)

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)

Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook)

Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained); Yay! He's one of my favorite actors of all time!

Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables)

Best Original Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained)

Best Adapted Screenplay: Chris Terrio (Argo)

And my final word: shame on the Academy for not at least nominating Shame; Michael Fassbender gave a deeply haunting, moving performance and the Academy quivered with fear at touching the touchy topic of sex addiction.
