The 85th Academy Awards Winners – Full List

Oscars 2013 actors

Another year and another Oscars. With new host Seth MacFarlene, it was a good show with great moments, mostly because they honored music in film. Those great moments included a tribute to the musicals Chicago, Dreamgirls and this year’s nominee Les Miserables. The biggest winners of the night were Life of Pi and Argo. Argo took home the top honor, unsurprisingly. Life of Pi’s Ang Lee surprised us with a Best Director win, and the movie also won Visual Effects, Cinematography and Original Score.

Check out the full list of winners after the jump! Share your thoughts on this year’s winners. Did your favorites win?

  • Pretty fair, in some categories was predictable, but not because they were bought because the performances were amazing I was surprised to see that Argo took best movie but I liked it because Ben never expected The only thing that bothered me in a way that recognizes not the work of the other films was the makeup category was nominated the Hobbit and won Les Mis, but I understand why I would have loved to see her take the Hobbit.
