A list of films, for which the director should have been nominated by the Academy.

A follow up to
Who the Oscars should have nominated: Acting

Alphabetical.

For each director, I have tried to find an image of them on the set of the film in question. Where this was not possible, I have used an image of them from another film set, or just a general profile picture (Eg. Raoul Walh).

agree with Darrem Aronofsky, David fincher and Martain Scorsese.

Agree with Hitchcock's Rope especially, should have got some more recognition for that one.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Aug 26 14:07
I agree with them all except Burton, he is quite overrated.

Great list. If you want to I recommend adding Hayao Miyazaki for Spirited Away. It probably had no chance getting nominated in categories outside of best animated feature. Shame, since it's arguably better then any of the films nominated that year.
