After the SAGs, Golden Globes, Grammys and many more, the award season is well and truly over. But, wow, did it go out with a bang last night at the 85th Academy Awards at The Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

The annual awards ceremony celebrated the year’s cinematic achievements including acclaimed movies Argo, Lincoln, Les Mis and Zero Dark Thirty.

As ever, the entertainment was spellbinding. Adele sang her James Bond theme song Skyfall, Jennifer Hudson belted out a show-stopping recital of her award-winning Dreamgirls hit And I Am Telling You, while the cast of Les Misérables received a standing ovation for their powerful performance of One Day More.
