Oscar Winners 2013

Hollywood's night to shine was celebrated with this years four hour live presentation of the 85th Annual Academy Awards given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The brightest lights and biggest stars of the silver screen attended the Oscars presentation held last night (Feb. 24, 2013) at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. Host Seth MacFalane and hostess Emma Stone led the event honoring the greatest films of 2012 with highlights including the Life of Pi earning four awards, Les Miserables grabbing three awards, Argo earning Best Film, newcomer Jennifer Lawrence taking home the Best Actress award, and Daniel Day-Lewis taking his third award home for his portrayal of Lincoln.

The evening was full of Oscar firsts, great performances, incredible presenters, and tributes to the over 100 actors and actresses who passed during 2012. Longtime singing and acting veteran Barbra Streisand delivered an impressive tribute to the late composer Marvin Hamlisch with the song "The Way We Were" for the "In Memoriam" portion of the show led by presenter George Clooney.
