Kathryn Bigelow — winner of last year’s Best Director for The Hurt Locker is not only an incredibly talented woman, but she’s also, you know, kind of a babe. She looks way better at nearly 60 than I do at 35. And she looked AMAZING last year when she won.

And ergo, I think, in the years to come, she and we will all agree that we’re all REALLY GRATEFUL that she didn’t wear this particular get-up LAST year and instead saved it for the ceremony where no one would be talking about how awesome she is and what she’s wearing, and instead snuck it in during the show where everyone else was totally distracted talking about how it might have been the worst Oscars ever. Always thinking, that Kathryn Bigelow. That’s why she’s my hero.
