>>"Argo," "Life Of Pi" Among Oscar Night's Big Winners
(Los Angeles, CA) -- The stars came out for Sunday's 85th Academy Awards, among them -- First Lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama was tasked with announcing the winner of the coveted Best Picture award. The honor went to Ben Affleck's "Argo." The Best Picture victory was one of three Oscars for "Argo."
The film also won the editing award and screenwriter Chris Terrio won for Best Adapted Screenplay. But the biggest haul belonged to Ang Lee's "Life of Pi." The film picked up a total of four awards, including Best Director for Lee.
In the Best Actor and Actress categories, each winner had memorable acceptance speeches. Daniel Day-Lewis won for "Lincoln," and joked that he and presenter Meryl Streep had swapped roles at the last minute and he was actually supposed to play Margaret Thatcher. Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress award for "Silver Linings Playbook," but drew some unwanted attention when she tripped walking to the stage. Lawrence laughed it off, however, and joked that the audience was probably giving her a standing ovation just because they felt bad for her.
In the best Original Screenplay category, Quentin Tarantino won for "Django Unchained," while one of the film's stars, Christoph Waltz, won the Best Supporting Actor trophy. Anne Hathaway was named Best Supporting Actress for her work in "Les Misérables," which was the second film to win three Oscars this year. Other winners Sunday night included Adele's "Skyfall" for Best Original Song, "Brave" for Best Animated Feature Film, "Amour" for Best Foreign Language Film, and "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall," which both got a statue for Best Sound Editing in a rare Oscar tie.
