... so it follows a woman should make history at the 2010 Academy Awards. Huge kudos to Kathryn Bigelow, who became the first woman in Oscar's 82-year history to win Best Director.
It was a beautiful, full-circle moment when Barbra Streisand presented the golden man to Bigelow for her work on "The Hurt Locker." It was a worrisome, nerve-wracking moment a few minutes later when her film received the Best Picture award, and Bigelow looked like she was about to either pass out or throw up on stage. Luckily, she did neither － just stayed stunning (she's unbelievably 58yo!) and gracefully entered into the annals of women's history.
Oh, and bonus － her wins were both over her ex-husband, the titan-ic James Cameron and his favorited film, "Avatar."
