So Daniel Day-Lewis made Oscar history by picking up his third Oscar for Best Actor, hot favourite Argo scooped Best Film and Ang Li pipped Steven Spielberg to win Best Director. We didn’t see that one coming, but had put Li down as our ‘should-win’ choice. The other major awards didn’t take us by surprise – Jennifer Lawrence holding out from the challenge by 86-year-old Emmanuelle Riva to win Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook, and Christoph Waltz collecting his second Best Supporting Actor award in the space of three years. Most predictable of all, Anne Hathaway took the gong for Best Supporting Actress for her showstopping role as Fantine in Les Miserables.
Here’s the full list of awards.
