Academy Awards underway with 'Argo' the favourite

Updated 25 February 2013, 16:45 AEST

We've had the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and the Screen Actors Guild awards, but it all comes down to this - Hollywood's Night of Nights - the Academy Awards, now underway in Los Angeles.

Australia has five nominations this year; Hugh Jackman, Jackie Weaver and Naomi Watts are up for acting awards, although are not considered front runners.

The bookie's favourite for best film is Argo, directed by Ben Affleck, who - controversially - missed out on a nomination for best director.

Presenter: Phil Kafkaloudes

Speaker: Marc Fennell, ABC film reviewer
