   The evenings biggest and most anticipated award for Best Picture went to the already award-winning film “Argo” directed by and starring Ben Afflect.

   As far as individual winners go, there were little, if any, upsets. The heavily favored Daniel Day-Lewis took home the award for Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of the 16th president in ‘Lincoln.” The award for Actress in a Leading Role went to Jennifer Lawrence for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Anne Hathaway won the Actress in a Supporting role award for “Les Miserables,” while Actor in a Supporting role went to Christopher Waltz for his role in “Django Unchained.”

   This year’s theme for the Oscars, music in film, made for a night full for dancing, performing and much more. One of the biggest acts of the night was a performance of the James Bond theme song “Skyfall.” by singer Adele Adkins. Adele won the award for best Musical Original Song for “Skyfall.”
