Oscars 2013: The Highlights


Will the 85th Academy Awards give Ben Affleck the best picture nod for Argo, since he lost out on a nomination as best director? As for British hopes, you’d need to be pretty confident to bet against Daniel Day-Lewis as Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, and there’s sure to be some glory for Les Misérables. Family Guy creator and Proms regular Seth MacFarlane hosts: will he be risqué, or give us a song? Or both?


A round-up of the winners and their acceptance speeches at the 85th Academy Awards, which were presented by Seth MacFarlane at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The programme includes Adele's first public performance of Skyfall, which was nominated in the Best Original Song category, and captures the mood of the ceremony as some of the film industry's biggest names collect their prestigious statuettes.
