Throughout this Oscar season, we are looking back at some of the great moments in the history of the awards. At the 71st Oscars in 1999, Steven Spielberg won the Oscar for Best Director for his war drama "Saving Private Ryan," which he said was an "extraordinary moment" in his life.
The film is a recreation of World War II's D-day invasion, and what resulted immediately afterward. Tom Hanks starred in the film as Captain John Miller, who leads his squad on a mission to bring home Private James Ryan, who is played by Matt Damon.

"It's Steven Spielberg," she joked to OnTheRedCarpet.com about the movie's director, adding that she would play a "meek mouse" if he asked.
Steven Spielberg made another epic war film with "War Horse" however, the director said one of the most important things for him while filming was making sure the horses on set were safe.
