    Yeah, that's the biggest surprise of the night. Not that Lee is undeserving or anything, it's just unexpected.

    Ang Lee becomes only the fifth director to win multiple Best Director Oscars without taking Best Picture (the others are Frank Borzage, Frank Capra, John Ford, and George Stevens - though Capra and Ford did direct Best Picture winners), and the first to do so in more than 50 years.

    I had Spielberg, but I had this nagging feeling I should pick Lee.

    17/21.

    Well, we don't know that Life of Pi won't win Best Picture, yet. Though it does seem unlikely. Argo probably has this wrapped up.

    Quvenzhané Wallis is adorable. I haven't seen Beasts of the Southern Wild yet, but I hope she wins.

    Don't. It's dull and nonsensical and is only winning accolades because critics need their pet art film for the year.

    Good for her. I love Jennifer Lawrence! Although I didn't really think it was an Oscar performance and Bradley Cooper dominated the film.

    Jennifer Lawrence as a sex adict = win!

    Can't believe she's an academy award winner. Her star power has risen fast.

    15/22 Called it.

    Now Catching Fire and X-Men: Days of Future Past will have to be marketed as starring Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence. :lol:

    Glad for Jennifer Lawrence. I loved her in Winter's Bone and think she's a great actress.
