Kathryn Bigelow: Best Director

Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman director last night at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards to win Best Director! She is the director of The Hurt Locker, probably one of the best films of the decade. The Hurt Locker also won Best Picture.
This maybe cliche, but I hope to be standing on the exact spot on stage she was. Her presence will linger on that stage. She has set a high standard for women directors, which is exactly what we need, to make a our mark on a genre overpowered by men. My heart is full of nothing but love for her. I am unbelievably proud.
