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.

Oscar Night in N.Y.C.: What Daniel Boulud Is Serving

Excitement is at an all time high for what promises to be a star-studded Oscar night, but for East Coast Academy members and celebrities that don't make the trek to L.A., Daniel is the place to be for the ceremony. Chef Daniel Boulud's namesake restaurant on the Upper East Side will be "the supporting actor" to the evening, Boulud says, revealing that the dishes he has planned are "a celebration of the movies" and "fun – not too cerebral."

Boulud also admitted he could not choose all the nominees to pay homage too. "[I] loved Argo, but except for giving you a big pile of caviar or a soup with saffron, I am not versed on Iranian dishes," he said at a preview of the meal earlier this week, adding he does "love the rice with butter" common to the country's cuisine.

As for the movies he did pick – No, Life of Pi, Kon-Tiki, Amour, Royal Affair and Les Misérables – he created six hors d'oeuvres inspired by the story and its setting. For Les Mis that means a bread basket of finger sandwiches because Boloud says "there will always be bread." And for Royal Affair he pairs smoked fish and potatoes for a "very Danish dish."

Academy Award Best Song Nominations: Who Will Win?

Might Adele wrestle a foul-mouthed bear for an Academy Award? Or will a criminal on the run sweep in to steal the statuette?

At this year's Academy Awards, it's anyone's guess.

The Oscar nominees were announced Jan. 10, and the five nominated tracks for Best Original Song range from jazzy tunes like the Norah Jones-sung "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" (Ted) to pop hits like Adele's "Skyfall" (Skyfall). The nominated bunch also includes moody, new age tracks like "Pi's Lullaby" (Life of Pi); bluesy ballads like the Scarlett Johansson-sung "Before My Time" (Chasing Ice); and Hugh Jackman's heart-wrenching, Broadway-ready ballad from Les Misérables, "Suddenly."

Listen to the nominated songs below – and then check out which songs (cough, mostly Disney songs in the '90s, cough) took home the Oscar for Best Original Songs in the past.
