87th Academy Awards: Best Director

Oscars 2015: Best Director

Next on this dedicated Oscar blog is the “Best Director” category, which this year primarily consists of  rather “indie” filmmakers such as Richard Linklater, famous for films such as Dazed and Confused, A Scanner Darkly, and, of course, School of Rock, and Wes Anderson, responsible for The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Once again, Boyhood is tipped by the bookies to win in for this category, meaning Richard Linklater will be walking home with the Oscar, and for the first time in this blog, I agree with them, although I do have a soft spot for for Mr. Anderson as The Grand Budapest Hotel is a quite brilliant and bonkers movie. In terms of those who may have been overlooked, Christopher Nolan for Interstellar, which I personally thought was brilliant, and Jonathan Glazer for Under the Skin. The nominations are:

Wes Anderson – The Grand Budapest Hotel

Alejandro González Iñárritu – Birdman

Richard Linklater – Boyhood

Bennett Miller – Foxcatcher

Morten Tyldum – The Imitation Game

Next… Best Supporting Actor
