Million Dollar Baby!

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Veteran actor/director Clint Eastwood (news) won his second best-director Oscar on Sunday for drama "Million Dollar Baby," about the complex relationship between a boxing trainer, played by Eastwood, and his protegee, portrayed by Hilary Swank.

Eastwood, 74, beat rival Martin Scorsese, whose biography of eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, "The Aviator," had been widely praised by critics. The Oscar is Eastwood's third overall. He won two Academy Awards (news - web sites) for 1992 western "Unforgiven," and in 1994 was honored for lifetime achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (news - web sites).

And did you see Hilary in that dress tonight!??
