Surprised by a couple of these picks and a couple of omissions but went with PTA.May 5, 2021 at 6:25 am #1204243331
I went with PTA but my first thought was the omitted David Lynch.
I do want to give a shout out to Spike Lee who should’ve been nominated and won for directing DO THE RIGHT THING and MALCOLM X.
Also, Wes Anderson would be high up there.

Where is George Lucas?
It is a shame that you only include american directors.
And definitely, i know is impossible now but Kubrick, Hitchock, Fellini, Bergman… all of them deserved one.May 5, 2021 at 6:55 am #1204243371
Went with Lee, though I’m incredibly fond of both Andersons and a variable fan of Fincher’s.May 5, 2021 at 6:57 am #1204243373
Out of the options in the poll: The Andersons
Other: Asghar Farhadi
"The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.May 5, 2021 at 7:19 am #1204243387
David Fincher has been making classics since 1995.
He has to be the number one “most overdue filmmaker”.May 5, 2021 at 7:40 am #1204243402
Greta Gerwig has literally 2 films she’s not overdue for anything, Park Chan-wook, Claire Denis, David Lynch, Lynne Ramsay, Michael Haneke, Alexander Payne are all way more overdueMay 5, 2021 at 7:44 am #1204243411
She’s 92 so it’s not going to happen, but Lina Wertmüller should have received an Academy Award as Best Director for at least one of the following—- Seven Beauties, The Seduction of Mimi, Love and Anarchy and/or Swept Away. She received an honorary Oscar in 2019, but as Peter O’Toole noted, honorary Oscars are not the same as “real” ones awarded in competition.

David Lynch. Pedro. Cronenberg. Campion. Ridley Scott.May 5, 2021 at 8:49 am #1204243478
Spike LeeMay 5, 2021 at 9:17 am #1204243488
I think Tarantino’s final project will secure him the Oscar for Best Director.
