Woody Allen won the Academy Award for Midnight In Paris, but it's not clear if he knows yet. Allen wasn't in the house to accept his award, because something much more important was going on:

Letty Aronson, producer of Midnight in Paris and Woody Allen's sister, said she hadn't talked to the filmmaker but was "pretty sure" he knew he won for best original screenplay.

"He was saying that the NBA All-Star Game was on at the same time so he might have to turn the channel," Aronson said. "But I bet Soon Yi told him he won."


The All-Star Game needed every last viewer it got, as it just barely beat the Dayton 500 rain delay in the ratings.
