Oscars 2013: the winners

The full list of winners from the 2013 Academy Awards



Add +

Thanks to a strong and diverse slate of films, the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony was an unpredictable affair: in the big six categories (Best Picture, Best Director and the four acting categories) not a single film took more than one award. Everyone assumed before the night that 'Argo' would take Best Picture, but it was far from a sure thing. In fact, the only truly safe bet was Daniel Day-Lewis and the Academy agreed, granting the British actor a record-breaking third Best Actor Oscar.

Overall it was a good night for 'Life of Pi' (four awards including Best Director and Best Cinematography), 'Argo' (three awards including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay) and 'Les Misérables' (three Oscars including Best Supporting Actress). And it was a perfectly respectable evening for 'Lincoln' and 'Django Unchained', each of which garnered two prizes apiece. Commiserations to 'Beasts of the Southern Wild', 'The Master' and 'Zero Dark Thirty' – but hey, it's surely nice just to be included, no?
