After seeing Zero Dark Thirty yesterday and assessing Jessica Chastain's chances, I starting wondering how many Oscar winning performances were directed by women.

While he didn't win, it is perhaps worth noting that Jeremy Renner was nominated for Best Actor for Bigelow's The Hurt Locker.
Congratulations to HARRY SHEARER on your first Emmy win! As arguably the most versatile cast member of The Simpsons, your win was truly long overdue.
