Tom Hooper wins best director for 'King's Speech'

By Jen Chaney

Tom Hooper has just been named best director at the Academy Awards for his work on "The King's Speech."

One can't say it was unexpected, since he won the same honor from the Directors Guild of America. But many still expected David Fincher to pull it out for "The Social Network" even if the Facebook movie ultimately lost best picture.

This could turn into one of the more debated wins of the night. And, probably, another excuse for complaints about Christopher Nolan's snub in the same category. You know. Just because.

What do you think if Hooper's win? Weigh in now.
