Amour has officially won the award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2013 Oscars. 

The Academy Award for Best Picture is presented on a yearly basis by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and it's the only category that every member has eligibility to nominate for.  It collectively represents the directing, acting, music, composing, editing, writing and various other efforts put into the respective movie. 

The Best Picture is the final accolade given out at the end of the Academy Awards ceremony and has been collected at the podium by the film winner's producers since 1951.

The Grand Staircase columns at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles is where the festivities of the Academy Awards have taken place since 2002, and show every movie that has won the coveted category since the award started being given out 85 years prior.

Interesting enough, a major alteration in the protocol for Oscar nomination happened in 2009, as up to 10 nominations are now allowed to compete for Best Picture.

Oscar forecaster and Harvard sophomore Ben Zauzmer spoke to the International Business Times about the change's impact on the contest.

"For many years, just about all of the nominees for Best Picture are getting nominated for Best Director - because there were five of each.  So getting nominated for Best Director, mathematically speaking, means you're likely to lose, because the losers are also getting nominated for Best Director."
