The Oscars 2013

Last night the stars were out on Hollywood biggest night. The most glamorous event of the year gathers all the great actors to celebrate their best performances, films, screenplays and productions of 2012.

When the Academy Awards ceremony took place for the first time on May 16 in 1929 nobody could estimate the great success that the event would register over the years and now it continuing with the 85th edition. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - AMPAS presented the annual ceremony honoring the best film of 2012 in the United States. The event took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California and Seth MacFarlane was the host this year.

Even if Lincoln received the most nominations, the star of the night was the movie Life of Pi, a 3D adventure drama film based on Yann Martel's 2001 novel with the same name, winning four awards, including Ang Lee for Best Director.

Argo, an American dramatic thriller, directed by Ben Affleck won three awards, followed by Django Unchained with Tarantino winning the original screenplay prize, Lincoln and Skyfall with two awards each.

Even if Ben Affleck’s thriller beat Lincoln for the Best Picture, Daniel Day-Lewis made history as the first person to win the Best Actor three times. He was the event’s favorite with his role Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.

The Oscars also planned some special performances from Adele, Shirley Bassey, the cast of "Les Miserables," Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger and Kristen Chenoweth.

And how can we talk about a glamorous event like this without reminding the appearances on the red carpet of the best dresses and suits. Harper’s Bazzar made a top 10 and Gwyneth Paltrow in a Tom Ford white gown won the first place. Second place was occupied by Rooney Mara in a Givenchy Couture dress designed specifically for her, followed by the beautiful Angelina Jolie in a black strapless Versace gown. Other well-dressed actresses were: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton, Emma Stone in a red Giambattista Valli, Natalie Portman in Christian Dior, Jessica Chastain in a baroque Alexander McQueen, Sandra Bullock in Marchesa and Cameron Diaz in a nude Gucci gown.
