    As of right now they are (living):

    1. William Wyler: 36 (14 wins + 22 nominations, 1936-1968)
    2. Elia Kazan: 24 (9+15, 1946-1962)
    3. Martin Scorsese: 22 (5+17, 1974-2013)
    4. George Cukor: 21 (5+16, 1931-1972)
    5. Fred Zinnemann: 20 (6+14, 1944-1977)
    6. Woody Allen: 18 (7+11, 1977-2013)
    7. Sidney Lumet: 18 (4+14, 1962-1988)
    8. Mike Nichols: 18 (2+16, 1966-2007)
    8. George Stevens: 18 (2+16, 1935-1959)
    10. Billy Wilder: 17 (3+14, 1944-1966)

    (if you’d like to see specific lists, just write, I’ve done the research)

    Just outside of Top 10 are Stanley Kramer (16), John Huston (15) and Francis Ford Coppola (14).

    William Wyler has directed the most Oscar-winning performances with 14, followed by Elia Kazan (9), Woody Allen (7), Fred Zinnemann (6), George Cukor, Clint Eastwood, John Ford and Martin Scorsese (all with 5) and then James L. Brooks, Jonathan Demme, Victor Fleming, John Huston and Sidney Lumet (all with 4).

    Which director is the one to watch to get into all-time best statistics?

    I think David O. Russell is well on his way to cracking this list with 12 noms for his last 4 movies. Assuming he rebounds from Joy he’ll be on here in no time.

    David O. Russell could certainly finish around second place if he comes back strong.

    David O. Russell so far has 12 (3+9, 2010-2015).

    Stephen Daldry so far has 6 (2+4, 2000-2011).

    Todd Field has 5 out of only 2 films (0+5, 2001-2006). 

    Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has 10 so far (0+10, including 2 pending noms, 2003-2016).

    David O. Russell will make it. Iñárritu too.

    And look out at Scorsese, who will get noms next year for Garfield and Neeson.

    How could I forget about Steven Spielberg? He has 13 nominations (1+12, including 1 pending, 1977-2016). 

    Quentin Tarantino has 7 (2+5, including 1 pending, 1994-2016). 

    Jonathan Demme has 8 (4+4, 1980-2008).

    Clint Eastwood has 10 (5+5, 1992-2014).
