The 2013 Oscar for Best Closing Goes to the ‘Here’s to the Losers’ Tribute Song [VIDEO]

After a rather entertaining open to the 2013 Oscars, host Seth MacFarlane clearly didn’t want it to end with just the hurried list of sponsors and the usual “let’s get to your local news as quickly as possible even though we just sucked 4 hours of your life away” attitude of the closing.

How do we know that? Because he made sure there was a really awesome closing song.

Dedicated to the evening’s losers.

‘Argo’ Wins Best Picture at 2013 Oscars, Vindicating Ben Affleck Once and For All [VIDEO]

Michelle Obama and Jack Nicholson, who, aside from their awesomeness couldn't be more different, announced the winner for Best Picture at the 2013 Oscars -- and it was none other than 'Argo.'

And though he could have, Ben Affleck didn't rub anyone's nose in it. He's a much better person than we are.

2013 Oscars – Ang Lee Wins Best Director for ‘Life of Pi’ [VIDEO]

Because it’s always fun to award the Oscar for Best Achievement in Directing to a director for whom English is a second language -- will we ever forget ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and Roberto Benigni? -- the Academy chose Ang Lee. Although Michael Haneke for ‘Amour’ was probably a close second.

Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress at 2013 Oscars, Remains Adorably Human [VIDEO, GIF]

Jennifer Lawrence didn't beat Meryl this time ... but only because Streep wasn't nominated for anything at the 2013 Oscars. Instead, J-Law beat Jessica Chastain, Quvenzhané Wallis, Naomi Watts and Emmanuelle Riva to win Best Actress.

And she fell down.

2013 Oscars – Anne Hathaway Wins Best Supporting Actress + Doesn’t Bother Acting Surprised [VIDEO]

As even our pet rocks predicted, Anne Hathaway won the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for her portrayal of Fantine in ‘Les Miserables.’

It’s okay when they give Dame Judi Dench an Oscar for barely appearing in a film -- look up ‘Shakespeare In Love’ -- but she’s a Dame. We aren't sure it's cool if the actress hasn't been recognized by the Queen.

For her role, Anne Hathaway cut off her hair and cried while she sang and then she was done. It’s possible the Academy – while not surprising us at all – may have disappointed us just a bit.

Director Judd Apatow Thinks There Should be a Comedy Category Added to the Oscars

I know the Academy Award is a very prestigious award in the film industry.  Millions of people flock to their TVs each year to see what the stars are wearing to the event and to see which of their favorite actors and actresses take home Oscar.  However, most of the time, it is the artsy films and the actors in those films that take home the gold.  In a way that is a big YAWN for me.

Oscar Winners: ‘The King’s Speech’ Reigns, Portman Soars

There weren't a whole lot of surprises at the 83rd Academy Awards -- as expected, "The King's Speech" took the big prize as Best Picture. The film about King George VI overcoming his stutter also garnered a Best Actor statue for Colin Firth and a Best Director win for Tom Hooper.

James Franco and Anne Hathaway’s Opening Monlogue For The Oscars [VIDEO]

James Franco and Anne Hathaway were certainly outside-the-box picks to host the 83rd annual Academy Awards. And after a pre-taped opening in which they tried to elicit advice from last year's host Alec Baldwin by channeling his dreams, “Inception” - style, the duo weren’t required to do a whole lot of heavy lifting in their opening monologue.
