Waltz wins supporting-actor prize for 'Django'
The story of how Hollywood, Canada and the CIA teamed up to rescue six Americans during the Iranian hostage crisis, ‘‘Argo’’ would become just the fourth film in 85 years to claim the top prize without a best-directing nomination and the first since 1989’s ‘‘Driving Miss Daisy.’’
The best-picture prize typically ends the Oscar show, but this time, MacFarlane and Kristin Chenoweth will perform a closing number on the Dolby Theatre stage that producers Zadan and Meron called a ‘‘'can’t miss’ moment.’’
