Aussies miss the Oscars in 85th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood
Australia's Oscars hopefuls have missed out on taking home any awards, as the 85th Annual Academy Awards wrap in Hollywood.
Les Miserables' Anne Hathaway has lived up to the hype and won the best supporting actress Oscar ahead of Australian veteran Jacki Weaver.
Weaver was nominated for Silver Linings Playbook, her second nomination in two years after her Hollywood breakthrough performance in Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom.
It was a woeful night for Aussie nominees, with Hugh Jackman's performance in Les Miserables losing to Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln in the best actor category, while Naomi Watts missed out on best actress for The Impossible.
Fellow Aussie nominees, visual effects wizard Dave Clayton and make-up-hairstylist Rick Findlater, also missed out for their work on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The Life of Pi's visual effects team was the winner, while make-up-hairstyling team from Les Miserables was victorious.
In one of the more controversial Oscars outings in years, Argo took out best film after a massive run at pre-oscars events, while Ang Lee triumphed as best director for Life Of Pi.
Life Of Pi took out the most gongs this year, not only taking home best visual effects and best achievement in directing, but also best cinematography and best original score.
Argo wasn't far behind, adding best adapted screenplay for Chris Terrio and film editing alongside its best picture award.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence took out best actress for Silver Linings Playbook, while Django Unchained also had a great night, taking home original screenplay as well as best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz.
