"Hurt Locker's" Oscar Winning Kathryn Bigelow On Directing

The 82nd Academy Awards will be remembered for many as a night of historical firsts. At long last the old guard is dying out and those filmmakers and artists we would have never considered to win did just that last night. Undoubtedly, the biggest winner of the night took home Oscars Best Director and Best Picture and HER name....say that again! HER name is Kathryn Bigelow and she is the first woman ever to win Best Director. Indeed, "the time has come!"

If you're unfamiliar with her work do a little research. And to help you with that assignment listen to her ideas on directing "The Hurt Locker," this year's Best Picture winner.

If you've seen "Hurt Locker" what are your thoughts?

Congrats to K-Big!

I love "Near Dark" and "Point Break" along with "Blue Steel", her early work.

An African-American could be next!
