2013 Oscar Winners revealed : Life of Pi most awarded

oscar2013winners_ABen Affleck’s “Argo” may have won the top Oscar for Best Picture (which is really expected as it already reaped plums from other pre-Oscar award giving bodies like the Golden Globe), but Ang Lee’s epic adventure film, Life of Pi gets the most awards.

Attended by many Hollywood superstars, who all sparkled during their walk on the red carpet, the annual Academy Awards of America is one of the most anticipated events in the film industry not only in U.S. but also in different parts of the world. And in a glamorous and glittering awards night today, (Monday morning in Manila) hosted by Seth McFarlane held at the Dolby Theatre, the American Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Sciences handed down awards to the best films in America on its 85th year.

Topping the list of winners is Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” who got a total of 4 awards (from 11 nominations) including Best Director. This is Ang Lee’s 2nd Best Director award from Oscars after winning in 2006 for Brokeback Mountain. “Argo”, meanwhile got 3 Oscars (out of 7 nominations) including the most coveted Best Picture. Steven Spielberg’s political film “Lincoln” which topped the most number of nominations at 12, won only 2 awards including Daniel Day-Lewis’ 3rd Oscar Best Actor Award.
