This is just another example of how award shows are probably rigged and political.  Here are five directors who never won.


Stanley Kubrick  – Can you even believe the guy who directed 2001 A Space Odessey, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lydon never won?  There is no justice!

Alfred Hitchcock – The master of suspense never won.  Seriously.  This man created what is considered the best movie, at least in terms of repeating patterns and obsessive love, Vertigo and he never won.

Hal Ashby – Director of Shampoo, Harold and Maude, The Last Detail and  Being There.   Some of the most original and funny films of all time and nary a nod.

Ingmar Bergman – Yes he is Swedish but the director of The Seventh Seal didn’t ever win?  Oh those narassistic Americans.

Sidney Lumet – The man directed the 1976 film Network.   Someone needs to say to the Academy, “you have meddled with the primal forces of nature and you will atone!”
