85th Academy Award Winners

By Zach


The Oscars aired last night, hosted by Seth McFarlane, and it was actually one of the better Oscars shows in a while.  There were a couple of great comedy bits, including a Sound of Music joke before introducing Christopher Plummer and Ted and Mark Wahlberg presenting the sound mixing/editing Oscars.  There was also a ton of musical numbers, which were either entertaining or unbearable depending on your tastes, with Adele and the cast of Les Miserables singing their Oscar nominated songs, Barbara Streisand ending the “In Memorial” section and, the highlight, a tribute to Bond music culminating in a performance of Goldfinger by the legendary Shirley Bassey.  It was anyone’s call about who would win Best Picture as Life of Pi seemed at one point poised to win but eventually Argo took Best Picture, despite Ben Affleck not being nominated for Best Director.  Check out the full list of winners below.
