Chicago – With Seth McFarlane as host, the 86th Academy Awards had more fun, and culminated with “Argo” winning Best Picture. Other major awards went to Daniel Day-Lewis (Best Actor, “Lincoln”), Jennifer Lawrence (Best Actress, “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Ang Lee (Best Director, “Life of Pi”).
Jennifer Lawrence led the surprises, beating heavily favored Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”). Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) also took home the Best Screenplay prize, joining Christoph Waltz, who won Best Supporting Actor for the same film. As expected, Anne Hathaway took home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Les Misérables.” The Best Picture win for “Argo” was a major victory for director Ben Affleck, snubbed in the Best Director category.
