The 85th Annual Academy Awards didn't have a lot of surprises -- it was widely expected that "Argo," Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day-Lewis would win and they did -- but let's take another look what Oscar voters declared 2012's best in film.

In doing so, "Argo" became only the fourth movie in history to win a Best Picture Oscar without at least receiving a Best Director nomination. "Argo" also claimed wins in the Best Film Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay categories.
