The Oscars 2013 Winners And How I Did With My Prediction

oscars, 85th academy awards 2013The Oscars 2013 Winners have just been announced a couple of hours ago. Are you surprise with the results? Being a Chinese myself (even though I am not from Taiwan), the most touching moment is when the Best Director Winner, Lee Ang, is being announced. He thanks practically everyone involved in the film, especially those from Taiwan. And oh, he thanks "Movie God" too! ;-)
