The 85th Academy Awards, hosted by Seth MacFarlane — and dedicated to music in film — were presented Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center. The evening featured performances from the cast of "Les Misérables," Barbra Streisand and more.



"Les Misérables," the starry film adaptation of the award-winning musical of the same name, took home three awards. Anne Hathaway was awarded Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance as the ill-fated Fantine, and the film took home awards for Makeup and Hairstyling, and Sound Mixing.
