Happy International Women’s Day! And what better way to celebrate than with Kathryn Bigelow holding aloft the Best Picture and Best Director Oscars? Proving that the lasses can do more around Hollywood than just look pretty in a posh frock, although that is cool too, because this is how far we have come: we can wear nice dresses, look great and still make films in which lots of things blow up. I am aglow with pride.
