No directing nod? No problem! Argo mastermind Ben Affleck accepted the Best Picture statue, thanking everyone from the people of Iran to wife Jennifer Garner to his kids. "Violet, Sam and Sera, I love you. This is for you," he said, fighting back tears.
Between the two of them, there are 6 gold statues and 22 nominations. So it's no wonder presenter Meryl Streep and Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis bonded giddily backstage.
WHEN HARRY MET BELLA
Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe and Twilight's Kristen Stewart were a presenting match made in teen heaven. Where was Katniss? Oh right, getting ready to win.
Dame Shirley Bassey earned the night's first standing ovation with her Goldfinger tribute.
The actor, in his flowing mane, first took home gold for My Left Foot.
"Charlize is a trained ballet dancer and we knew that Chan could move!" said show co-producer Neil Meron of Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum's number.

Seth MacFarlane kept the party going after the show, hosting a bash for 500 guests, complete with a 70-piece orchestra.
Costars in the 2002 musical, Renée Zellweger and Richard Gere had "not spent time together in all that time," said producer Craig Zadan.
