Without suspense, Tom Hanks opened the envelope and read 'The Hurt Locker' as best picture winner. The Iraq war drama also walked away with the most awards of the night -- six.
Meanwhile, Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the best director Oscar for 'Locker,' over her ex James Cameron -- who was also competing for his direction of 'Avatar.'
Barbara Streisand gleefully announced, 'Well the time has come,' before saying Bigelow's name. Quentin Tarantino, Lee Daniels and Jason Reitman were the other directors who lost out on the prize.
