    There was Herbert Ross with The Goodbye Girl and The Turning Point and Stephen Soderbergh with Traffic and Erin Brockovitch. Anybody else ever achieve this?

    Hitchcock (Rebecca and Foreign Correspondent)

    I’m baffled Hitchcock didn’t win Best Director for Rebecca considering that film won Best Picture. I get they loved all things John Ford, but still.

    Michael Curtiz was nominated for both Four Daughters and Angels With Dirty Faces in 1938.
    (Frank Lloyd did it unofficially in 1928/29 for The Divine Lady and Drag; and Weary River)

    That is such a bad ass lineup there. Very hard to beat

    Soderbergh for TRAFFIC and ERIN BROCKOVICH.

    This was Hitch’s first year in the US while Ford (who had yet to win) was a well-respected industry vet since the silent era.

    Sadly, this was the closest Hitch would ever get to winning–3 of his remaining 4 nods had no corresponding Best Picture nod and SPELLBOUND really had no hope given its competition (this was the first of two times he lost to Billy Wilder).

    Ford had won five years previously for The Informer.

    “Angels with Dirty Faces” was not a best picture nominee.

    “Angels with Dirty Faces” was not a best picture nominee.

    But THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD was, which Curtiz co-directed.

    Spellbound was nominated for Best Picture.

    I know. That’s why I said “3 out of 4” weren’t nominated for Best Picture. That was the 4th.

    Only three directors have been nominated for Best Director twice in the same year.

    1929/30: Clarence Brown for Romance and Anna Christie

    1938: Michael Curtiz for Angels with Dirty Faces and Four Daughters

    2000: Steven Soderbergh for Erin Brockovich and Traffic (he won for the latter)

    Victor Fleming directed both Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz, which were both nominated for Best Picture of 1939. The former film won.

    John Ford directed THE GRAPES OF WRATH and THE LONG VOYAGE HOME (1940). Both were nominated for Picture, and Ford would go on to win Director for the former.

    This was the same year Hitchcock also had two.
