'ARGO', Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day-Lewis Crowned Oscar MVPs

Year after year, while watching the first hour or so watching the Oscars telecast, you can basically predict all the early category wins (including Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway). Then, an hour after that (this year amid one live musical performance after another), the ceremony is rushed for time and they are literally speeding through a barrage of unexpected winners over which you have no time to react (with the exception of Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln). 

This year those less predictable wins include director Ang Lee for Life of Pi (obviously not a movie the general movie going public is drawn to) and Jennifer Lawrence for The Silver Linings Playbook (a movie that divided both audiences and critics). And to cap off the evening, Argo takes home the top prize, best picture, cementing Ben Affleck's career as one of the best comebacks of all time. 

So, with that said, at least the Oscars kept it semi interesting this year? Check out the full list of winners below:

They were definitely a lot less predictable than last year's. I enjoyed the Oscars this year, even though I was getting really tired towards the end.

The awards were interesting, Waltz winning was a surprise. Expected Jones to get it for Lincoln. Enjoyable if a little strange night.
