    I love the shock value of Polanski’s win.

    Someone really thinks Daldry deserves a directing Oscar?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? The only thing he’s good at is pulling uhh-mazing performances out of his actresses.

    To even suggest he’s a better director than THE Roman Polanski…

    Daldry to date has made no film worthy of winning a directing Oscar, and only one worthy of the nominaton (The Hours).

    This was Roman Polanski’s and I’m amazed that the Academy had the balls to give it to him despite being up against Marshall as well as his current standing in U.S. law.

    1. Almodovar
    2. Polanski
    3. Daldry
    4. Marshall
    5. Scorsese

    Crazy to think I would ever place Scorsese last, but here it is.  Almodovar & Polanski can easily flip flop…as both Daldy & Marshall can in 3rd & 4th place.

    Was really worried that Marshall would lead this. Glad the right director won.

    An amazing line-up imo. But Roman Polanski fully deserved that win. All the others are all close behind though, because their work was also stunning.

    This was a very controversial year. I remember (please correct if I’m getting the details wrong) Harvey Weinstein got director Robert Wise of West Side Story and Sound of Music fame to “write” an op-ed/campaign advertisement supporting Scorsese’s direction of Gangs of New York. It received huge backlash when Wise didn’t write the column, including William Goldman’s response column criticizing Scorsese’s direction. It really was quite the hooplah (http://www.altfg.com/blog/movie/robert-wise-miramax-martin-scorsese-oscar-campaign-scandal/), and it must’ve been a huge shock when Polanski won (and neither Scorsese or Marshall). You can actually see Harvey’s response in the video footage….LOL
