The Best Director award goes to Kathryn Bigelow who made history by being the 1st FEMALE Director in film history to win the said title. She defeated her former spouse James Cameron on that category/title.
She said and I quote:
“There’s no other way to describe this. It’s the moment of a lifetime”
She dedicated her award to all the soldiers fighting around the world. “May they come home safe”, she said.
Here is a short video of the 82nd Oscar Winner that I got from YouTube ^_^
