Oscars 2013 Re-Cap: Winners, Performances & Red-Carpet

Posted by: cnikky

The cast of Chicago re-united!

The 2013 Oscars took place Sunday night at the Dolby theatre in Hollywood, CA.  Seth McFarlane hosted the star studded event and as most host for the Oscars, he received mixed reviews.  This year the show had a “musical,” theme.  The highlight of the evening were the musical performances by Jennifer Hudson (singing her hit from Dreamgirls), the cast of Les Mis (performing a mash-up of songs from the film), Katherine Zeta Jones (performing All That Jazz from Chicago), Adele (singing her Oscar winning song Skyfall), and Barbara Streisand performing Memories for the “In Memoriam” portion of the show.

Argo wins for best picture

The results of the winners, were a bit disappointing.  Lincoln was one of the most outstanding films of the year, but it only received 2 wins to it’s 12 nominations? Argo, was the nights big winner for best picture.  While it was a good movie, I’m not sure it deserved to beat Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.  After watching Beasts of The Southern Wild, I was sure 9 year old Quvezhane Wallis deserved the Best Actress win, but it went to Jennifer Lawrence instead.

As expected, Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway walked away with Oscars, but surprisingly, Christoph Waltz beat out Tommy Lee Jones for Best Supporting actor.  For a complete list of winners, read below.

On the red carpet, my picks for best dressed were Kelly Rowland and Charlize Theron.
