Daniel Day-Lewis made history at the Oscars - he took home a record third best-actor award for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln.

Despite not being in the best-director category, Ben Affleck's "Argo" got best picture along with two other prizes.

"Life of Pi" had the most awards with four, including a surprise win for director Ang Lee.

Jennifer Lawrence took a tumble as she collected her best-actress Oscar for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook," but joked about it in her speech.

Anne Hathaway kept her feet when she received her best-supporting actress trophy - her film "Les Miserables" won three awards overall.

"Django Unchained" won two statuettes, including best-supporting actor for Christoph Waltz, as did "Skyfall," which saw Adele take home the first Oscar awarded to a Bond theme.

Melissa McCarthy's "Identity Thief" returned to the top spot at the U.S. box office on a typically slow Oscar weekend - it took an estimated fourteen point one million dollars.

"A Good Day to Die Hard" dropped to second with ten million.
