    Hill and Avidsen, because any man that prevents the greatest director of all time, Mister Ingmar Bergman, of a win, don’t deserve pity. But I voted in Hill, because he also beat Bertolucci, Friedkin AND George Lucas, what a shame!

    We should hook our pinkies together and make a wish.

    Tom Hooper!  Sorry, I loved “The King’s Speech”, but both director and best picture should have gone to “The Social Network”.

    Booga! Where have you been?

    Looks suspiciously to me as if the voters were as SICK of the TSN fanboys as I was, by the end.

    Oh, did THE SOCIAL NETWORK lose? I hadn’t heard anything about it.

    I can understand people being pissed that Carol Reed won over Stanley Kubrick, but hey, that doesn’t make me hate Carol Reed, who made one of the greatest films ever (THE THIRD MAN), even one bit.

    But why the hell is Bernardo Bertolucci even on this list??? Does anybody think he didn’t deserve an Oscar? Seriously.

    Hazanavicius should not have won. Director should have gone to Scorsese (not BP, just director).

    I second the write-in vote for Howard. I still can’t believe that he won instead of David Lynch (for Mulholland Drive!), Altman and Peter Jackson. He was the least deserving of the five and his film is boring, predictable, pretentious, cheaply sentimental and visually dull. And I may be the only one but I don’t buy Russell Crowe’s performance at all.

    Anyway, another undeserving winners – well, most of them given who was snubbed by the Academy in a given year, but if you consider the actual nominees: James Cameron should give his Oscar to Curtis Hanson, I love Polanski’s work but he won for one of his lesser films (Pedro would have been my choice!) and Danny Boyle’s win makes no sense to me (as doesn’t the film).  But somebody strangely missing from the poll is Kevin Costner. I can’t believe Scorsese was denied an Oscar for Goodfellas. This movie is genius!

    Are you voting against Ron Howard or for David Lynch/Peter Jackson/Robert Altman/Ridley Scott? There’s a difference.
    Please, I need to know.

    For me, the worst  choice for best director is

    George Roy Hill for The Sting..

    Other terrible choices include

    The Coen brothers for  NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
    Peter Jackson for whichever LOTR he won for.
    Oliver Stone for both of his wins.
    Clint Eastwood- UNFORGIVEN
    Delbert Mann- MARTY

    William Friedkin over Stanley Kubrick for A clockwork orange
    George Roy Hill over Ingmar Bergman for Cries and whispers
    Barry Levinson over Stephen Frears for Dangerous liasons
