The 2013 Academy Award for Best Picture was awarded to Hollywood's favorite film: "Argo." Oscar looked good in Ben Affleck's hand, especially as the star was notably snubbed in the Best Directing category.
Other films nominated for Best Picture included "Lincoln" (an early contender that fell out of favor after being swept by "Argo" in pre-Oscars award shows), "Life of Pi," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Django Unchained," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Amour" and "Les Miserables."
Jack Nicholson and Michelle Obama presented the award.
"I know what you're thinking: the three sexiest producers alive," producer Grant Heslov said as he stood next to co-producers Affleck and George Clooney.
That "Argo" won is historic, as it becomes only the fourth film in the 85-year history of the Academy Awards to win Best Picture without a nomination in the Best Director category.
Affleck previously won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 1997 for "Goodwill Hunting." "Argo's" win caps a stellar comeback for the filmmaker, who was once thought to have ruined his career in movies like "Gigli."
Last year, "The Artist" won Best Picture.
Members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences vote to select Oscar nominees and winners, which makes the Oscars differ from the Golden Globes, which are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press. Guild awards (Screen Actors Guild, Writers Guild, Directors Guild) are awarded by members of a particular profession.
Seth MacFarlane helmed this year's Oscar telecast, which took place at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre and included a number of charming set pieces. A tribute to James Bond, a "Chicago" reunion, a "Les Miserables" medley, performances by Adele and Barbra Streisand and even Ted all made it into the busy evening.
