Kathryn Bigelow: 'I hope that I'm the first of many'

Kathryn Bigelow is the first woman to win in an Oscar for best director, but she hopes that she won’t be the last.

“I hope that I’m the first of many," she said backstage at the Academy Awards Sunday.

“The music - that's where I most identified with Bad,” Bridges said, adding that he’s “been writing and playing since a kid.”

But unlike Bad, Bridges has never had four wives – just one strong marriage to a great wife, whom he thanked during his Oscar acceptance speech.

Mo'Nique: The Academy judged on talent, not politics

Mo'Nique assured the press backstage that everything she needed to say she'd already said when she accepted the Oscar for best supporting actress.

Reveling in the moment, she said, "I'm a stand-up comedian who just won an Oscar."

But for the "Precious" actress, her win was bigger than her. In her acceptance speech, she acknowledged Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Academy Award, and backstage, Mo'Nique was still expressing her gratitude to those who came before her.
