"Departed" and Director Deemed the Best at 2007 Oscar

Departed, The picture


Mob epic "The Departed" was named the Oscar's best film with director Martin Scorsese as the best director.

The spotlight at the 79th annual Academy Awards truly belongs to "The Departed", finally.

Culminating the prestigious event, the mob saga gloriously not only grabbed the top honor of Best Motion Picture of the Year but also led its helmer Martin Scorsese to ultimately nab Best Achievement in Directing prize.

For Scorsese, this becomes the first time he took the award after his failure to bring home any at five past events. The New-York born filmmaker first earned a nomination in the category in 1981 through "Raging Bull" then in 1989, 1991, 2003, and 2005 for "The Last Temptation of Christ", "Goodfellas", "Gangs of New York", and "The Aviator", respectively.

A production of Warner Bros. Pictures, "Departed" is a remake of the 2002 Hong Kong crime thriller "Infernal Affairs" which centers on the intrigue happened in the police force and crime gang as each assigns a member to infiltrate the opponent's side, leading the appointed men to suffer double life for years. The flick landed five Oscar nominations and ended up winning four of them, including best adapted screenplay for William Monahan.
