The week after winning two Oscars for directing and producing The Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow was standing in line at L.A.'s Superior Court. Fulfilling her duty as a citizen, she turned up for jury duty and was placed in the jury pool for a drunk driving case.

According to another jury pool member, as the bailif called out the juror names, Bigelow was number 50. During interrogation, Bigelow said that she couldn't find a defendant guilty unless rehabilitation was attached to the sentence. The jury and alternates were picked before they got to Bigelow, and she was sent home.
