A Milestone Moment

"I'd just like to dedicate this to the women and men in the military who risk their lives on a daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan and around the world. May they come home safe." -- Kathryn Bigelow

Finally -- a Best Director Oscar is won by a female director! Bigelow took home the golden statue for The Hurt Locker, a drama which her fellow nominee, ex-husband James Cameron, told her she had to make. Barbra Streisand proudly bestowed the historic Academy Award on Bigelow, who thanked the brave soldiers who served as an inspiration for her war film, which picked up six golden trophies.
