I went with Scorsese for Best Director simply because he is so overdue. Best Picture and Best Director usually go hand in hand, which is why I chose The Departed. Last night I heard that Spielberg, Lucas and Coppola will be the presenters for Best Director. Who better else to win the award and join their powerful group?
