Michael Douglas pays tribute to Catherine Zeta Jones

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones wowed on the red carpet

MICHAEL Douglas says his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones' Academy Awards performance was a real "workout"

The Welsh actress and her Chicago co-stars entertained the Oscars crowd with a number that paid homage to the musical movie that won Catherine a best supporting actress gong in 2003 at the ceremony last night.

Ten years on the cast put on an impressive show and 68-year-old Michael was quick to congratulate his gorgeous wife.

"I can't believe it was ten years ago," he marvelled to Entertainment Tonight.

"She looks as beautiful... and just amazing. That's a workout, and there she is. [She] looks great; the show stands up pretty good too."

The night was full of musical interludes, including a performance from Adele, who took home the best original song prize for Skyfall.

Daniel Day-Lewis picked up the best actor prize for his lead role in Lincoln but said the highlight of his night was the entertainment.

"The music was fantastic, actually," he gushed. "Adele's a bit of a favourite in our family."

Jon Voight was also a fan of the evening, which was hosted by Seth MacFarlane and produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

"I really enjoyed tonight. I thought [it] was nice [and] evenly spread out and all these wonderful, talented people getting attention," he smiled.

Anne Hathaway had plenty to celebrate, as she took home the best supporting actress award for her portrayal of Fantine in Les Misérables.

The brunette had no idea she would be honoured with the golden statuette.

"No. [I didn't know]," she insisted. "Not until Christopher Plummer said my name."
