    I’m just imagining the reactions if a man 30+ years dead wins Best Director over a nominated woman.

    Sounds like a mess.

    I can’t see the academy going for it. There seem to be a lot of voices in the industry trying to push forward, and nothing could be further from that than nominating a film that’s probably older than a substantial number of the Oscar voters themselves.

    Citizen Kane, while one of the most influential and innovative films and definitely deserved to win Picture and Director, was more boring than Boyhood. Let’s hope this is an improvement.

    Disagree. I found Citizen Kane thoroughly engaging in its narrative and characters. The dialogue was excellent, the music score was solid without being overdone, and the cinematography by Gregg Toland also deserved to win the Oscar because of how uncannily gorgeous that black-and-white looked with its use of shadows.

    I agree with everything you said except for the engaging narrative and characters, I fell asleep. The dialogue was great, but what do you expect from Mankiewicz. Toland is the unsung hero and was the best DOP in the world until Freddie Young.

    This is interesting. I’m not sure if it is eligible, but I want to see this movie so badly. It feels like a true final ode to classic Hollywood and Orson Welles can finally Rest In Peace for people seeing his Magnum Opus

    No, they aren’t going to give an award to a dead person who made the movie 30 years. It is insulting to the people who actually directed a film this year and deserve the win. It is not even like Orson Welles is looking after the post-production of the movie and helping with things such as editing, score, and sound which are very important parts of a film. He does not deserve to win for just shooting a film and not doing any of the other things (which the other director nominees would have done).

    So, no he does not deserve a win. Not even a nomination. Just give him an honorary award or something instead of the best director award.

    That would be awesome. So it won’t happen.

    This would be weird.

    But Chaplin did it. Although he was still alive and had not won a competitive Oscar and it happened in a “lesser” category.

    Jessica Lange is another example, she won for a 4 year old film (Blue Sky). Again, not that many years and still alive and in the lamest Oscar category ever. I doubt anybody cared.
