Well, there goes another Oscars night.

The 85th Annual Academy Awards wrapped up tonight by giving Argo the award for best picture. While the film’s director, Ben Affleck, was snubbed in the Best Director category, he definitely made up for it with his passionate and adorable speech. Although it was missing a shout out to Matt Damon.

Daniel Day-Lewis surprised no one by taking home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Lincoln. I am consistently surprised by how funny he is. Like, he’s the most serious actor with the most amazing sense of humor. Check out the full list of winners after the jump!

Jennifer Lawrence looked surprised herself to win in the Best Actress category. Also, no one makes tripping over her dress look as good as J-Law. And while Anne Hathaway made a beautiful speech following her win for Les Miserables, I still can’t get over her dress.

Life Of Pi was the film that “swept” the awards winning Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effect, Best Score and Best Director for Ang Lee. Guys, how much of a badass director is Ang Lee? He has such a vast array of work, and all of it is astounding.

Christoph Waltz surprised some folks for his Best Supporting Actor win for Django Unchained. While Christoph himself seemed a tad bit surprised, he still pulled off one of the best speeches of the night. Adele definitely joined the best speech group for her heartfelt speech after winning Best Original Song for “Skyfall.” Girl couldn’t even speak, she was so choked up. It was adorable.

Overall, I’d say it was a pretty fab show. I think Seth MacFarlane did a great job and brought a whole lot of fun and musicality to the show. Also, can we talk about how amazing Catherine Zeta-Jones is? Love her! I did have a problem with the Les Miserable bit though. How do you make “One Day More”–the most exciting song in the show–sound so boring? Anyone else have that problem?

Oh! And I couldn’t hear anything Kristin Chenoweth and Seth were singing at the end. I bet it was funny. Really though, when you’ve got a year with Day-Lewis winning–and setting a record for most Lead Actor Oscars–Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum dancing, Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitttapping and singing, I think you’ve got a pretty good show.

What do you guys think of all the winners? Were you the winner in your Oscar pool tonight? Did you love the Jaws theme when speeches ran long? Leave us your thoughts on all the results and the show in the comments!
