Hi, if you compare the results to the Golden Globes there were no big surprises at the 85th Academy Awards last Sunday. The Oscars were rather evenly spread among a couple of great movies.

Argo vs. Life of Pi

Argo officially won the Best Picture Oscar, but the prestigious Best Director Oscar, which is usually awarded jointly with Best Picture, went to Life of Pi.

So it was rather a split decision, also in raw numbers. Argo picked up three Oscars (Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Editing) and Life of Pi four (Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects). Result 4:3 for Life of Pi.

Lincoln, the movie with the most nominations (12), won "only" two Oscars: Production Design and Best Actor (in a leading role) Daniel Day-Lewis.

Oscars Love for Waltz and Haneke

The big sensation for me is however that two Austrians won an Oscar :)

"Tarantino villain" Christoph Waltz won already his second Academy Award, this time for his sarcastic supporting role in Tarantino's Django Unchained.

And filmmaker Michael Haneke successfully took home the foreign language film Oscar for his drama Amour. The Austrian-French production was nominated in five categories including Best Picture, which was a sensation by itself for a non-American movie.

Congrats and keep calm and keep rocking!

Mark Andrews was brave and broke up with the strict dress code by wearing a kilt at the red carpet and Oscars ceremony. Together with Brenda Chapman they won the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar for their film "Brave". Kudos for being brave!

Jennifer Lawrence @ Oscars 2013 Dolby Theater

During the way to the acceptance speech, Jennifer Lawrence tumbled over her voluminous dress, but recovered with humor (see video below). It was no big deal. The former Kodak Theater in Hollywood is now called Dolby Theatre by the way.

Thanks for letting us take part at the OSCARs 2013 via your fantastic review!

Guess one of my favorite looks is the one from Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Hope soon to return to my beloved Hollywood with you ♥

Tja, wieder mal: die Männer sehen aus, als tragen sie Uniform: alles sieht gleich aus. Bei den Anzügen kann man die Köpfe auf irgendeinen anderen kopiern und keiner sieht einen Unterschied.

Der einzige Hingucker ist Mark Andrews, toll anzusehen. Beim Vergleich mit den Frauen offenbart sich die ganze Tristess der "Männermode".

Insgesamt aber tolle Bilder.

Xena: Oh yes, the Zeta-Jones "dress" is also one of my favorites ;P ♥

DeiterB: Yes, exactly. The dress code is so boring for men :/ It even does not really matter from what brand the tuxedos are because they look so similar.
