Anne Hathaway wins her first Oscar, for Best Supporting Actress in Les Miserables. It comes as no surprise as she was a hot favourite in the category.

It is her second nomination at the Academy Awards. Her first came in 2009 for Rachel Getting Married.

Hathaway received her prize from last year's Best Supporting Actor winner, Christopher Plummer, who gets a tribute in a Sound Of Music skit.

Les Miserables also wins Best Sound Mixing, while Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall share the prize for Best Sound Editing.

Argo wins for Best Film Editing.
