Her director Spike Jonze took home his first Academy Award tonight for best original screenplay. The film bested such contenders as David O. Russell's American Hustle and Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, but was long a favorite for the Oscar.

Her won heaps of praise this year for its thoughtful, shockingly intimate treatment of a romance with an operating system. The film is also up for the Oscar for best picture, though it faces stiff competition from Gravity.
