“Argo” and “Life of Pi” dominate the Academy Awards

Story by: Barrett Herrig

First lady Michelle Obama accompanied Jack Nicholson on stage at the Academy Awards to present an Oscar to Ben Affleck for best picture with his film “Argo.”  This was only one of three awards won by the film, but it still did not take home the most.

“Life of Pi” hit a grand slam for the night, taking home four trophies, including the Oscar awarded to Ang Lee for best director.

Jennifer Lawrence trips going up the steps at the Academy Awards.

 Other Winners:

  • Best actor: Daniel Day- Lewis for his role as Abraham Lincoln in “Lincoln”
  • Best actress: Jennifer Lawrence in the film “Silver Linings Playbook”
  • Best supporting actor: Christoph Waltz in “Django Unchained”
  • Best supporting actress: Anne Hathaway in “Les Miserables”

Many awards were handed out that night, but Lawrence’s will probably be the most memorable.  As she walked up to receive her Oscar, she tripped on the steps. It was an embarrassing moment for her, but entertaining for everyone else.
