Her has won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Spike Jonze, who also directed Her, took to the podium to accept the Oscar. This is Jonze's first Oscar; he was last nominated for 1999's Being John Malkovich.

Her was a favorite for the Original Screenplay Oscar (not a surprise, considering the main romantic interest was a computer). It wasn't a lock, though, and bested American Hustle, among others. This win is bad news for American Hustle, which has yet to pick up a major award.
