Ang Lee took home the Best Director trophy for “Life of Pi,” earning the decorated Taiwanese filmmaker his second Oscar in the category. He previously won in 2005 for “Brokeback Mountain.” “Life of Pi” earned a total of four awards, including Oscars for Cinematography, Visual Effects and Original Score.
When they announce the best actress winner to Jennifer Lawrence she looked absolute beautiful in a Dole Haute Couture Cinderella ball dress and she was best dressed at the Oscar. When she tripped on the stairs, Prince Charming Hugh Jackman came to her rescue to hoist her up. Jennifer approached to the podium and grabbed her Oscar and she made an acceptance speech.
She made it, she got it and she beat Meryl Streep for being best actress.
“You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing. But thank you.” She said as she told the crowd as they were giving her a standing ovation.
While journalism were questioning her backstage she explain them “Was that on purpose? Absolutely! What happened? What do you mean what happened — look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress, that’s what happened. I tried to walk upstairs and stepped on the fabric. They waxed the stairs. What was going through my mind? A bad word that I can’t say that starts with F.”
“Argo” won for Best Picture which was presented by First Lady Michelle Obama from the White House via satellite. Ben Affleck director and producer in this epic adventure to rescue 6 American held captive in Iran. It won awards in Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Anne Hathaway dreamed a dream of Oscar gold and it came true, winning Best Supporting Actress for her turn as Fantine in the film adaptation of the hit musical. But her outfit did not win for best dress. She wore a pale pink Prada with criss- cross straps around the neck and wider band that tied at her back, sectioning the open back into several parts. But she was stunning.
Christoph Waltz claimed the first trophy of the evening with a win for Best Supporting Actor for his role as bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz in “Django Unchained,” while writer/director Quentin Tarantino won Best Screenplay for his slavery-era revenge thriller.
Director Michael Haneke accepted the award for Best Foreign Language Film for his acclaimed Austrian drama “Amour.” It look interesting.
“Searching for Sugar Man,” a documentary about the search for a long-lost rock ‘n’ roll legend, won the award for Best Documentary Feature. I really want to see it because I really want to make and direct a documentary.
Pixar’s adventure “Brave” won for Best Animated Feature — the animation studio’s seventh Oscar in the category. Walt Disney’s “Paperman” won for Best Animated Short. Disney animation has always win in this category and I have seen most of the Oscar winning Disney Animation. Up! is still my favorite.
Pop vocalist Adele won the Oscar for Original Song for her soaring titular theme from the latest Bond film “Skyfall.”She’s an incredible singer.
In a rare Oscar tie, “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Skyfall” both won the award for Sound Editing. There have only been four previous ties in Academy Awards history, including in 1969, when Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn both shared the Oscar for Best Actress for “Funny Girl” and “The Lion in Winter,” respectively. I hate to see the cat fight between these two women, but they are professional actors, they don’t fight.
