The 85th Annual Academy Awards took place on Sunday in Hollywood where Ang Lee’s Life of Pi and Ben Affleck’s Argo were the big winners on Oscar night.

It was a big night for the Academy Award hopefuls as Ben Affleck’s Argo won Best Picture while Ang Lee took home the Best Director award for Life of Pi. Daniel Day -Lewis walked away with the Oscar for Best Actor for his leading role in Lincoln after Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress for her emotional role in David O.
