After seeing Zero Dark Thirty yesterday and assessing Jessica Chastain's chances, I starting wondering how many Oscar winning performances were directed by women. Mine is a very incomplete list and mainly consists of women. Have any Best Actor winners been directed by women? Alan Arkin won Best Supporting Actor in a performance co-directed by a woman.

Charlize Theron – North Country – Niki Caro

 

Best Supporting Actor:

Sir Alec Guinness – Little Dorrit – Christine Edzard

John Hawkes – Winter’s Bone – Debra Granik

Mark Ruffalo – The Kids Are All Right – Lisa Cholodenko

 

Best Supporting Actress:

Lauren Bacall – The Mirror Has Two Faces – Barbra Streisand

While he didn't win, it is perhaps worth noting that Jeremy Renner was nominated for Best Actor for Bigelow's The Hurt Locker.
