Kathryn Bigelow shows off her two Oscars as she stands next to screenwriter Mark Boal and producer Greg Shapiro as they accept the Oscar for Best Picture for their film The Hurt Locker at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night (March 7).
The 58-year-old director said in her acceptance speech, “This really is… There’s no other way to describe it, it’s the moment of a lifetime. First of all, this is so extraordinary to be in the company of such powerful, my fellow nominees, such powerful filmmakers who have inspired me and I have admired for, some of whom, for decades. And thank you to every member of the Academy. This is, again, the moment of a lifetime.”
Kathryn is the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar in the Academy’s history.
