Oscars 2013 Winners Recap for Nerds

I may have missed the Oscars Sunday night (I had important marathoning of Dexter to do. Important!), but when I went online the next morning I was inundated by all that I had missed. I’m sure all the films nominated, whether I saw them or not, were great and well-deserving pieces of art. But you know which ones I cared about? The ones about superheroes, spies, and hobbits. So how did my favorite films of the night fare? Sadly, The Hobbit didn’t win anything they were nominated for, and the one category The Avengers made it into went to someone else. But at least Skyfall won a couple of awards, including the incredibly obvious win of Adele’s song “Skyfall,” which everyone knew belonged to her and co-writer Paul Epworth the second they were nominated, making it the first James Bond song to win an Oscar. You can watch Adele’s live Oscar performance below:

Skyfall’s second win for the night was for Best Sound Editing, an award that was split between it and Zero Dark Thirty, only the sixth time a tie has occurred in Oscar history.

Also of nerdish note, Jennifer Lawrence, of X-Men and Hunger Games fame, took home the award for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. She tripped on her way up the stairs, making everyone in the entire country develop a crush on her if they didn’t have one already. No one film dominated the awards, but Life of Pi, Lincoln, and Argo took home a few awards each and won in several of the major categories, with Argo taking home Best Picture. Digital Spy has a complete list of winners here. Congratulations to everyone who won!
