The Departed wins/Scorsese finally wins!

About frikkin' time! Martin Scorsese finally takes Oscar gold for The Departed, and, amazingly enough, The Departed won for Best Picture as well. It's pretty rare these days to have a movie take home Oscar gold for both Best Picture and Best Picture, but The Departed, a genre film, a thriller, a gangster film, pulled it off.
And the best part... when the Oscar was announced for Best Picture, we were told that Scorsese calls this "the first movie he's done with a plot."
Congratulations, Mr. Scorsese... Now, I start rooting for Leo.
