Oscars 2013 Winners

It was definitely a big night yesterday for the movie industry and cinema lovers!

Ben Affleck's masterpiece"Argo" captured three awards, sharing the limelight with "Life of Pi" (four),  "Les Miserables" (three), "Django Unchained" (two) and "Skyfall" (two).

In addition to the top prize, which First Lady Michelle Obama announced in a surprise cameo, Affleck's movie also captured the honors for adapted screenplay (Chris Terrio) and film editing (William Goldenberg).

"You can't hold grudges," Affleck, who was famously snubbed in the best director category, was quoted as saying as he accepted the best picture award. "It's hard but you can't hold grudges."

Director Ang Lee received the award many considered Affleck should have won in winning best director for "Life of Pi". Lee, who won the same award for "Brokeback Mountain" in 2006, pulled off an upset over the presumptive favorite "Lincoln" director Steven Spielberg. It has to be said that "Life of Pi" also included Oscars for cinematography, original score and visual effects.

In the acting categories, Jennifer Lawrence received the best actress award for "Silver Linings Playbook", Daniel Day-Lewis won the best actor award for "Lincoln", Anne Hathaway captured best supporting actress for "Les Miserables" and Christoph Waltz received the best supporting actor for "Django Unchained".

We can't forget though the most memorable (and also embarrassing) moment when Lawrence, 22, tripped in her  pink Dior Haute Couture gown as she made her way to accept the best actress award. Laurence has handled the uncomfortable moment with a sense of humor, stating: "
"Thank you so much. This is nuts guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad...that was embarrassing."
