Argo wins Best Picture at long and largely unmemorable 85th Academy Awards

Posted By on Mon, Feb 25, 2013 at 12:22 AM

Director-producer Ben Affleck's Argo took the top honor at the 85th Academy Awards last night with a victory in the Best Picture category. Daniel-Day Lewis became the first three-time winner of the Best Actor Oscar for his work in Lincoln, and Jennifer Lawrence took Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. The evening's best moments? Lawrence recovering gracefully after falling on the steps up to the stage to accept her award; a 76-year-old Shirley Bassey absolutely killing it with a performance of her '60s classic "Goldfinger"; and nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, Oscar-nominated star of New Orleans' own Beasts of the Southern Wild, flexing her formidable muscles whenever the camera came her way.

A complete list of the winners is available here.
