Oscars 2013: 'Argo' takes Best Picture, Ang Lee is Best Director, Daniel Day-Lewis sets record

The 2013 Academy Awards split the riches between a wide variety of films, with 'Argo' winning Best Picture, Ang Lee scooping Best Director for 'Life of Pi', Jennifer Lawrence claiming her first Oscar for 'Silver Linings Playbook' and Daniel Day-Lewis setting a record for three Best Actor Oscar wins with 'Lincoln' crowning the triple.

Bouncing back from his snub of not even being nominated as Best Director, Ben Affleck took to the stage to accept Best Picture for hostage drama 'Argo' alongside fellow producers Grant Heslov and George Clooney.

Affleck said: "You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life because that's going to happen. All that matters is you have to get up."

In all it was Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's "unfilmable" novel 'Life of Pi' that made the biggest waves, taking home four accolades.

'Argo' followed close by with Picture, Adapted Screenplay and Editing. 'Les Miserables' also bagged three awards, with Anne Hathaway surprising nobody with her win for Best Supporting Actress.

Despite 12 noms, Spielberg's 'Lincoln' only took home two for Production Design and Day-Lewis' title role. The actor took the opportunity to poke fun at his reputation for morphing himself into character, quipping: "Before we decided to do a straight swap, I had actually been committed to play Margaret Thatcher, and Meryl was Steven's first choice for Lincoln, and I'd like to see that version, And Steven didn't have to persuade me to play Lincoln, but I had to persuade him that perhaps, if I was going to do it, Lincoln shouldn't be a musical."

Other highlights included Jennifer Lawrence tripping up the stairs on her way to accept her Best Actress prize. She was previously nominated for her work in 'Winter's Bone'.

The first honour of the night was bestowed on Best Supporting Actor winner Christoph Waltz for 'Django Unchained' - his second win after his previous Quentin Tarantino collaboration 'Inglourious Basterds'. Tarantino himself accepted Best Original Screenplay for the slave drama/thriller/western.

Adele and Paul Epworth won Best Original Song for the theme tune to Bond film 'Skyfall'. The picture also won Best Sound Editing which was actually shared with 'Zero Dark Thirty' in a rare split that presenter Mark Wahlberg assured the audience was "no BS!"

'Amour', as predicted got Best Foreign Language Film while Best Animated Feature went to 'Brave' (some had their money on 'Wreck-It Ralph'), while Best Documentary went to 'Searching for Sugar Man'.

'Family Guy' and 'Ted' creator Seth MacFarlane' hosted the show. He opened the event with a series of tongue-in-cheek musical numbers and an interaction with William Shatner from 'the future' before settling into more routine, safer hosting duties. There was also a tribute to the Bond film franchise and a look back at musicals which largely rested on 10-year-old former Best Picture winner 'Chicago'.
