'Argo' takes best picture at the Oscars
LOS ANGELES: If Ben Affleck was snubbed by the Oscars, everyone should be so lucky. His Iran rescue thriller "Argo" has won best picture from the Academy Awards.
It's the first best picture winner not to be nominated for best director since 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy." But despite the omission of Affleck — or perhaps buoyed by it — "Argo" emerged as the Oscar favorite, winning top honors from the directors, producers, screen actors and writers guilds.
Affleck and fellow producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov accepted the award Sunday night.
Among the other eight nominees, Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" was perceived as the biggest competition to "Argo." The other nominees were "Life of Pi," ''Silver Linings Playbook," ''Zero Dark Thirty," ''Les Miserables," ''Amour," ''Beasts of the Southern Wild" and "Django Unchained."Jennifer Lawrence wins Oscar game
HOLLYWOOD: Jennifer Lawrence became one of the youngest best actress Oscar winners ever Sunday for “Silver Linings Playbook”- using her “Hunger Games” drive to secure Hollywood's highest honor.
“You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell. This is nuts!” Lawrence said about the standing ovation she received after she tripped on her way up onto the stage in a voluminous Dior Couture gown.
The 22-year-old former cheerleader has now added Academy Award prestige to the fortune undoubtedly made playing Katniss Everdeen in the blockbuster teen movie franchise.
And she is not shy of speaking her mind about Tinseltown, telling a recent interviewer: “It's almost like I subconsciously don't want to work anymore, so I'm trying to ruin my career.””I'm so aware of all the bullshit that surrounds Hollywood, and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they're curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it,” she said.
“So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like 'I'm pregnant!' when I'm in two franchises.”Lawrence, who plays a messed-up 20-something who falls for Bradley Cooper's recovering mental patient character in “Silver Linings Playbook,” struck Oscars gold on her second attempt, after being nominated in 2011 for “Winter's Bone.”
The only younger best actress nominees were 12-year-old Keisha Castle-Hughes in 2002's “Whale Rider” and Quvenzhane Wallis, who was in the running this year for “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” at the age of nine.
