85th Academy Awards (Oscars 2013)

This morning, the 85th annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Hosted by Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, the esteemed award ceremony saw brilliant performances and some well deserved wins after a fantastic year for films.

Seth, as expected opened the night with humour and as anticipated he rode the edge of crudeness comparing Chris Brown and Rihanna’s famous incident with Quentin Tarantino’s violent slave revenge epic Django Unchained, calling it “the story of a man fighting to get back his woman!” Distasteful but predicted, Seth was forgiven when he said in jest, “that’s as bad as it gets, if it makes you feel any better,” though he quickly added, “it’s really not as bad as it gets.” In the end the controversy laid low.

The ceremony was celebratory of musicals, with Les Misérables one of the most nominated pictures set to scoop up many awards. Seth performed some musical numbers before the event fully got under way, seeing him invite the likes of Harry Potter actor turn Broadway star Daniel Radcliffe,  the stunning Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum join him in song.

The cast of the critically acclaimed Les Misérables took the stage mid-show to perform ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘One Day More’. Jennifer Hudson belted out her Dreamgirls number ‘And I’m Telling You’, while Chicago’s Catherine Zeta Jones sung ‘All That Jazz’.

50 years of the James Bond franchise was celebrated with epic performances from Dame Shirley Bassey and Adele – who then went on to scoop up ‘Best Original Song’ for ‘Skyfall’ with Paul Epsworth.

Ang Lee’s Life of Pi was the biggest winner at the 85th awards with four awards, closely followed by Les Misérables and Ben Affleck’s Argo – which scooped the biggest award of the ceremony, ‘Best Picture’.

Amongst Seth’s humour, laughs we’re provided by the award winners. Daniel Day-Lewis who won Lincoln’s only award on the night for ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ gave a surprisingly funny speech and Jennifer Lawrence, who won ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’ for Silver Linings Playbook, tripped up on her way to collect her Oscar!

Overall, the three hour procession was a mighty success, seeing the best films of 2012 go head to head in an evening of glitz, glamour and gratitude.
