The 2013 Oscars ceremony was rumored a while back to pay tribute to the 50 years of James Bond films by uniting the actors who've played 007 on the stage. Although one of the Oscars producers debunked that rumor not too long after the fact, there was indeed a portion of the show dedicated to the epic franchise.
The 2013 Oscars ceremony, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, started off with a bang. We knew there was gonna be at least one or two musical numbers, given the comedian's past musical turns for 'Family Guy,' but were you prepared for Harry Potter and Robin Boy Wonder singing and dancing together? Or, for that matter, Captain Kirk beaming in from the future?
It was one of the most hotly contested categories at the 2013 Academy Awards, but Christoph Waltz squeaked ahead of some very tough competition and took home some Oscar gold, winning Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained.' This was not an easy victory, especially since every nominee in this category was a past winner!
The Oscars are always entertaining (well, maybe not always) and what better way to commemorate the 2013 Oscars than with our favorite animated GIFs from this year's show. And hey, thanks to these Oscar GIFs we have documented evidence of Tommy Lee Jones having a sense of humor!
Normally, the Best Short Film awards at the Oscars are a great opportunity to go the kitchen to grab a beer. After all, you probably haven't seen these films and don't have much invested in who's winning or losing (unless you're the gambling type). That changed this year when all of the animated short film and live action short film nominees made their way online, letting anyone watch them for free. But then the animated nominees vanished from YouTube this past week. What happened?
