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.
It starts with "Argo," the Best Picture winner, which overcame the nomination morning snub of Ben Affleck in the Best Director category to dominate pretty much all of Hollywood's award season. 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.
But "Argo" was not the night's most honored film. That was Ang Lee's visually dazzling literary adaptation "Life of Pi" which took home four Oscars: Best Director for Lee, Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography and Best Original Score. »
