It's getting crowded in Ang Lee's workspace.

The Taiwanese-born American film director, who was named Best Director at Sunday's Academy Awards for Life of Pi, already had a place picked out for his latest statue as he walked the red carpet early in the evening.

"My study," he said of Oscar's new home.

Lee, 58, previously won for Best Director in 2006 for Brokeback Mountain.

That earlier win may have taken the pressure off Lee himself, although he admitted to having some butterflies on Sunday's show. "I'm just nervous for all my people," he said. "Eleven nominations [tonight for Life of Pi]."

In the end, the movie won four Oscars – for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects, along with Lee's Best Director victory.
