The biggest names in Hollywood come together for the 85th Annual Academy Awards that took place Sunday night in Los Angeles. Our Neil Rosen takes a look back at the big winners of the night.



LOS ANGELES, CA -- At the 85th Academy Awards, held Sunday night in Los Angeles, it was "Argo" that took home the top prize for Best Picture, with first lady Michelle Obama opening the envelope live from The White House. And even though the Academy snubbed Ben Affleck, by not nominating him for Best Director, as a producer of that film, he got to take to the stage to accept his Oscar.

Best actress honors went to Jennifer Lawrence for her turn in "Silver Linings Playbook."

As expected, Daniel Day Lewis took home the gold for his portrayal of the 16th President of The United States in "Lincoln." Lewis made Oscar history by becoming the first person to ever win three times in the Best Actor category.

An emotional Anne Hathaway graced the stage and picked up her first statuette. She won in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in "Les Miserables."

The biggest surprise of the evening came early on when Christoph Waltz won unexpectedly for Best Supporting Actor in "Djano Unchained." It was his second win in three years.

Quentin Tarantino, who wrote and directed "Django," won for his Best Original Screenplay.

Ang Lee picked up the coveted trophy for Best Director, for his movie "Life Of Pi," which won four awards in total, more than any other movie this year.

Best animated feature went to Pixar's "Brave." Best Foreign Language Film was "Amour," Best Documentary garnered a win for "Searching For Sugarman," and Best Adapted Screenplay earned another trophy for "Argo."
