‘Brave,’ ‘Paperman,’ ‘Lincoln’ Earn 2013 Oscars
Last night, Hollywood celebrated the performers, creators, and at the 2013 Academy Awards. While Argo earned Best Picture, several Disney films were also honored with Oscars at the ceremony, which also included an appearance by the cast of The Avengers.
Following its wins at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Annie Awards, Disney/Pixar’s recent film Brave earned the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Co-directors Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman accepted the award, making Chapman the first woman to earn an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. The film beat out fellow Disney nominees Wreck-It Ralph and Frankenweenie. Also recognized last night was the simplistically beautiful Paperman, which earned the Oscar for Best Animated Short.
In addition to Disney’s animation wins, Lincoln was also recognized at the Oscars in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role. Daniel Day-Lewis took home the award for his intense and moving portrayal of Abraham Lincoln, becoming the first actor in the history of the Academy Awards to earn a record-setting three Oscars in that category.
