Cue the hook!

When Polish film "Ida" took home the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, even the "stop talking" music didn't prevent its director from delivering the night's longest acceptance speech.

Pawel Pawlikowski was so overcome with emotion for bringing home Poland's first Oscar for foreign language film that he forgot there were other awards to be given out.

The win marks the first foreign language Oscar for Poland despite nine previous nominations and a rich history of filmmaking, including by renowned directors like Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polanski. But the tautly made "Ida," a period film that plunges into a dark chapter of Polish history of German occupation during World War II, emerged as one of the critical hits of 2014. Pawel Pawlikowski's film also was nominated for its cinematography.

Other nominees were: "Timbuktu" from Mauritania, "Wild Tales" from Argentina, "Leviathan" from Russia and "Tangerines" from Estonia.
