    Analyze This: Why 'Argo' Won Best Picture, Ang Lee Won Best Director & More 2013 Oscar Fallout

    Watch: All The Oscar Acceptance Speeches From Affleck to Adele

    While some unfortunate folk got ushered offstage aggressively by the "Jaws" playoff music (the genius-or-uncalled-for debate continues), the night's biggest Academy Awards winners stole the show with their great speeches. We gave the nominees some pointers last week with our 10 Best Os...

    Oscars: Watch The Full 85th Academy Awards Show In Its Entirety

    Missed the 85th Academy Awards last night for some reason? Not into it? Just sort of put off by Seth MacFarlane's perennially self-satisfied and smug smirk? Perhaps you watched, but went to bed during the 6th hour when you knew there were still 45 nominations to go? We can't fault you e...

    The red carpet may be all rolled up, but that doesn't mean the Oscar controversy will end there. With Ben Affleck's "Argo" taking home the widely expected prize for Best Picture last night at the Oscars, the Iranian government -- who have never been big fans of the movie in general...

    Well, that's a wrap. The two bigger winners of the night were "Argo," which one the coveted Best Picture award and three awards total, and "Life of Pi," which took home the most statuettes of the evening including Best Director for Ang Lee (which we called in our predictions).

    Check Out Jack Kirby's Real Artwork For The Fake 'Argo'

    You know that great scene in “Argo," the one towards the end in the airport? Oh, spoilers for "Argo" coming up here, by the way. The scene we’re talking about is probably the most tense in a movie positively brimming with tension, where Scoot McNairy’s character come...

    Michael Haneke's 'Amour' Dominates César Awards; 'Argo' Wins Best Foreign Film

    If you had told us a year ago that a Michael Haneke directed film about the death of an elderly woman would become a contender for Best Picture, Best Foreign Lanuage Film, Best Actress and Best Director at the Oscars, we would've said you were crazy.
