 Argo, Life of Pie Shine At 85th Oscars

Quite expectedly, Ben Affleck's "Argo" has bagged the Oscar for the Best Picture at the 85th Academy Awards.  "Argo" beat eight contestants for the top prize announced by Michelle Obama at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

 

"Argo" recounts how the US diplomats who took refuge in the Canadian embassy in Tehran during the Iran hostage crisis were taken out of the country as a bogus movie crew.
