Thanks to Will McCrabb's Twitter feed we find out what George Lucas said to Steven Spielberg via telegram on Oscar night way back in 1982. The 54th Academy Awards had Steven Spielberg up for best director but ultimately lost to Warren Beatty for Reds.
Raiders of the Lost Ark unfortunately also lost best picture to Chariots of Fire. But the movie did equal the most awards taken on the night along with Chariots of Fire with four each. Raiders won best sound, best art direction, best film editing and best visual effects.
