Kathryn Bigelow has graced the stage and accepted awards for ‘The Hurt Locker’. She was the biggest winner during the entire night and the spotlight was on her. Many congratulated her and applauded the triumph of the Hurt Locker. True enough, the spotlight is also on her as she walked the 82nd Academy Awards as one of the worst dressed celebrities for the Oscars in 2010.
Kathryn Bigelow looked very uncomfortable in the gray-silver long taupe gown. While she is awarded as the first women to ever win an Oscar for Best Director, she also won another award – worst dressed. I guess she herself was not expecting to be on stage that often that night? Well then, this is truly a very accomplished and inspiring day for her. I bet she will be making a lot more movies.
