Congrats to Taiwanese-born director Ang Lee, who won his second Oscar for Best Directing with his latest film "Life of Pi," an adaption of Yann Martel's fantasy adventure novel about an Indian boy who survives a shipwreck but is stranded in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.
The film received a total of 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture -- and also won for Cinematography, Original Score and Visual Effects.
"Thank you movie god," Lee said, receiving a huge laugh from the audience.
"I really need to share this with all 3,000 - everybody who worked with me on 'Life of Pi'," he added.
The 58-year-old Lee won his first Academy Award in 2006 for directing "Brokeback Mountain," the story of a complex love affair between two men, and was nominated for a Best Directing Oscar for his 2000 martial arts epic "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
