Ang Lee had his priorities in order when he gave one of his first thank yous to the "movie god."
The Taiwanese director pulled off a huge upset when he won an Academy Award for directing "Life of Pi." He beat out front-runner and two-time Oscar winner Steven Spielberg.
Lee also gave a shoutout to the shipwreck story's lead actor, Suraj Sharma, but didn't thank the rest of the cast by name.
"I cannot waste this time talking about them," he said sheepishly.
He did slip in a quick mention of his agent, his lawyer and of course his wife.
"I have to do that," he said.
