2013 Awards Season: Lincoln's Double-Win Still Leaves it Behind Argo
January 28th, 2013
The categories and winners were...
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
- Argo beating Lincoln for best ensemble cast is a bit of a surprise. Argo has been winning a lot more awards than people thought it would, so this is less of a major surprise and more of a continuation of a trend.
- A lot of people thought Jessica Chastain had overtaken Jennifer Lawrence as the favorite for the Best Actress Oscar; however, with the latter's win for The Silver Linings Playbook, she's back in the lead.
- Daniel Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones both won for their performances in Lincoln, so the film is continuing to take home the hardware.
- Anne Hathaway's win for Les Miserables is perhaps the least surprising win of the night. Even people who hated the movie, and there were a lot of them, thought she was fantastic in her role.
- Skyfall might not have earned the Best Picture nomination that many thought it deserved, but it did win a SAG for stunts.
