Moviemaker Ang Lee had two big reasons to party on Sunday (24Feb13) - his Best Director Oscar win came on the same night as the Chinese New Year's wrap-up celebrations. He explained, "It is the official closing of the Chinese New Year - we celebrate for two weeks. It's a great celebration. This is a great night for me and for everybody who liked the movie, particularly in Asia... I wish them a happy new Year of the Snake."
