Ben Affleck, Anne Hathaway, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Bradley Cooper and more stars celebrated Hollywood's biggest night on Feb. 24 at the Oscars. (An Academy Awards winners list for 2013 can be found below.)
Hosted by Seth MacFarlane ("Ted"), the 85th annual Academy Awards included a wide array of box office hits. For the first time ever, the Best Picture category included six films with grosses over $100 million, including "Argo," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln" and "Silver Linings Playbook." "Zero Dark Thirty," another Best Picture nominee, was in striking distance of nine figures as well. (The other Best Picture nominees, "Amour" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild," were limited releases.)
The history making didn't end there. The Oscars 2013 ceremony also included opportunities for Day-Lewis and Affleck to enter the record books. Day-Lewis, nominated for "Lincoln," won his third Best Actor Oscar, an Academy Awards record. Affleck, meanwhile, became only the fourth director in the 85-year history of the Academy Awards to see his film win Best Picture without a subsequent nomination for Best Director. (The last time this happened was at the 1990 ceremony when "Driving Miss Daisy" won.)
Going into the Oscars 2013 ceremony, all signs pointed to an "Argo" Best Picture win. Affleck's rolled through awards season, winning awards from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Producers Guild of America, Directors Guild of America, Writers Guild of America and BAFTA.
Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" led all films with 12 nominations. Ang Lee's "Life of Pi" was next with 11 nominations.
