Oscar 2013: An Evening in Pictures


More than 30 minutes (and a good dozen MacFarlane-induced cringes) past its scheduled end time, the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony has drawn to a close. We’ll have fuller analysis tomorrow morning (read: once we’ve sobered up a little), but they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in that spirit, here are 11 of our favorite images of the night, from on and off-stage. Enjoy them — and enjoy the 12 or so hours we get until next year’s Oscar race begins.
