Ang Lee wins the Best Director Oscar for 'Life of Pi', beating Steven Spielberg and David O. Russell. This was an interesting category because there were two major and well publicized 'snubs' when Benh Zeitlin and Michael Haneke were announced as the nominees instead of Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck.
This marks Ang Lee's second Oscar win for Best Director
 
However, without those two on the nominee list, many people assumed that it was a sure thing that Spielberg would then win. Despite this assuredness, Ang Lee and David O. Russell ended up gaining some momentum during the last few weeks.
 
And surprisedly, Ang Lee did end up taking the win. This marks another win for 'Life of Pi' tonight, which has largely been present in the technical categories more than anything else. It also marks the second time that Ang Lee has won the Best Director Oscar, which previously happened for 'Brokeback Mountain'.  
Life of Pi received 11 Nominations tonight

Lee has a couple of different films in development, but nothing yet has a release date. Of course, he has been busy with 'Life of Pi' for the last couple of years. Lee has previously said that 'Life of Pi' is one of the films that is closest to his heart, and it definitely shows in the film - the details are impeccable, and the film itself is a masterclass in filmmaking.
