    I know that. He asked about lone Director nods not represented in BP.

    I think he meant a movie that didn’t receive any nominations apart from Director.

    Off the top of my head: 1988’s The Last Temptation of Christ for Martin Scorsese. There might be other examples, but none recently.

    As much as I’d love to say Bradley Cooper, it was probably Peter Farrelly.

    Lynch for Mulholland Drive was a lone nomination for the film in 2001.

    I think the screenplay and the score was considered to be in the race but didn’t make the cut. But yes being a film’s sole nomination was bizarre one.

    Farrelly is well liked in the industry, but there might have been a snob snub by the Academy directing branch for being the director of those raunchy comedies earlier in his career. Also, Green Book is not a showy artistic film, and was more liked for its acting and screenplay, then direction and cinematography. Having said that, there reports that Spielberg was in the film’s corner to defeat that Netflix Roma, though that might have translated more for the Best Picture race. There’s also the so-called older white men in the director’s branch who supposedly were the demographic of Green Book voters. Cooper might have been snubbed a little for being an young actor turned director, like Ben Affleck. But the film is well shot, and also got a cinematography nomination at the Oscars. Also, Bradley Cooper losing Best First Time Director at DGAs might have been because people were voting him for Best Director and didn’t want him to win both categories, so probably he has support from directors. My guess was it’s Cooper, but Farrelly would not have been far behind. Maybe they tied for sixth.

    Spielberg disliked Netflix so I guess that report might be accurate. Green Book being crowned as Best Picture and Spielberg was thanked, I have a feeling that Spielberg used his influence to support GB.

    I say Bo. The branch seemed way more eclectic than the rest of the academy. It was probably 6th in screenplay too.

    Lynch for Mulholland Drive was a lone nomination for the film in 2001.

    And for Blue Velvet too in 1986. There was also Hiroshi Teshigahara for Woman in the Dunes in 1965, a sole nomination a year after it was nominated for Foreign Film. (There are rules against that now, but there shouldn’t be; if the eligibility rules for Foreign Film and other awards are different then it’s unfair on Foreign Film nominees that couldn’t secure a US general release date in the same year.)

    Yes, sorry for the way I phrased it. It happened more than I thought with people saying Scorsese in 1988, Lynch in 2001, and Lynch in 1986. The Teshigahara one feels like it should have an asterisk. Burnham certainly isn’t Scorsese or Lynch, but it’s not as unlikely as I thought when I asked the question.

    I think Farrelly was probably in 6th place, but wouldn’t be surprised if it was Cooper.

    Amazing that David Lynch managed to pull off the Best Director being the only film’s nomination with two of his films! Unfortunate, because both of those films deserved far more than just 1 nomination a piece.

    In addition to Best Director precursors, here are categories that Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive received major precursors/nominations for:

    Blue Velvet
    Best Picture – Critics Choice*, Boston Critics*, Independent Spirit, LA Critics, NY Critics
    Lead Actress (Isabella Rosellini) – Independent Spirit*
    Lead Actress (Laura Dern) – Independent Spirit
    Supporting Actor (Dennis Hopper) – Golden Globes, Critics Choice*, Boston Critics*, Independent Spirit, LA Critics*
    Original Screenplay – Golden Globes, WGA, Independent Spirit, LA Critics
    Cinematography – Critics Choice*, Boston Critics*, Independent Spirit, NY Critics

    Mulholland Dr
    Best Picture – Golden Globes, Boston Critics*, Critics Choice*, Cannes, Chicago Critics*, Dallas-Fort Worth Critics, LA Critics, NBR*, NY Critics*, Toronto Critics
    Lead Actress (Naomi Watts) – Boston Critics, Chicago Critics*, Critics Choice*, Las Vegas Critics*, LA Critics, NBR*, NY Critics, San Diego Critics*
    Original Screenplay – Golden Globes
    Film Editing – BAFTA*
    Cinematography – Critics Choice, Chicago Critics, Independent Spirit*, NY Critics
    Original Score – Golden Globes, BAFTA, Chicago Critics

    The most obvious is Peter Farrelly. Of course, the fangirl morons on here are voting for Cooper even though ASIB didn’t win anything all season and Green Book was much more liked AND won Best Picture. I’m not saying Farrelly would definitely have been the sixth, but OBVIOUSLY he would have much more of a chance than Cooper.

    I’m not surprised anymore at what idiots on these boards pick anymore. If people on these boards actually used logic in their picks then I wouldn’t be the only one right all the time. So I guess keep not using your brains so I can be the only smart one.

    Good god Jan. This is the second time in a row you’ve gone around calling people morons for discussing alternatives to Green Book; you’re as offensive as the movie you stan. Your arrogance is also showing and it isn’t cute.

    Is Djoko the same person who wanted to kill Olivia Colman? I’m certain he/she is, but I just want to know for sure.

    No lol. This user is just plain rude when it comes to people and Green Book apparently.
