Holding his Oscar in one hand and a burger in the other, the surprise Best Director winner had just come from Vanity Fair's post-ceremony party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles. Who said you couldn't eat fast food in a tux?
Lee, who beat Steven Spielberg for Best Director, thanked his native Taiwan, his wife, family and cast in a heartfelt acceptance speech.
Every one of you in the cast. I cannot waste this time talking about them. You're the golden statue in my heart.
I cannot make this movie with the help of Taiwan. We shot there. I want to thank everybody there helped us. Especially the city of Tai Chong.
My Indian crew, I love you. My Canadian crew, I love you. My family in Taiwan.
My wife, Jane Lin. We'll be married 30 years this summer. I love you. My boys, Han and Mason, thank you for your support.
