Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Well, the stars were out in force, dresses and statues in tow, and overall the Academy Awards went to the right people. Sure, Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan didn't win, but they were never going to. The award everyone was watching out for was Best Film. Would it go to Avatar or The Hurt Locker? Well, the answer was a pretty resounding Hurt Locker.

Yes, the Oscars this year showed that money can't buy you awards (although it can buy you a lot of blue people), as Kathryn Bigelow walked away with a well-deserved and historic win for Best Director, as well as taking the Best Film Oscar too. Picking up technical nominations like Editing and Sound along the way, everything was pointing towards a clean sweep of the board. And it pretty much was.

The others all went as expected, with the major surprise being Best Foreign Language Film, which went to The Secret in Their Eyes instead of A Prophet or even The White Ribbon. And despite Jason Reitman's wins at other ceremonies, Best Adapted Screenplay chose Geoffrey Fletcher's full-on adaptation of Precious (Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire) instead. Maybe it was the title that did it.

Read on for a full list of this year's winners.
