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).
