Even though they were some of the greatest directors of all time, they never won an Oscar for Directing.

Here is the list. Which do you find the most surprising?

Alfred Hitchcock. The fact that he never did after being nominated five times is really sad. He had an Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, but that's not Oscar per se. 

Also, you have added Fellini two times on 11 and 12.

It's really tough to pick out of so many great directors but if I have to pick then I'll go with David Fincher.

Fincher is on the other Poll Suggestion because he can still win.

My favourite director is Akira Kurosawa, but I think Hitchcock got more robbed, what with being English, and having been nominated five times.

Hm, what if you divvy this into those that have passed (Why didn't they win?) and those who are still alive (Who will win it first?)?

Good idea, since half of them can still win. I made another list for them. Thank you.

Cool. I'm glad I could help. I'm sure we can debate the answers for years.

Hi Migjen / Chihir0 (which do you prefer? or do have another name or nickname that you'd rather be used?), I remember you from the old poll board and it's good to see around here lately. :)

My vote: Most surprising? Probably Hitchcock. "Most deserving" is much more difficult to answer (but I like polls with tough choices and think that the results are more interesting).

This is a good poll and I like it a lot. May I suggest a few edits? (below in bold)

Even though they were some of the greatest directors of all time, none ever won an Oscar for directingWhich do you find the most surprising?

And perhaps also remove "have" from the title: Excellent Directors Who Never Won the Oscar

Otherwise it may give the impression that they still could win.

Good to see you too Ruby. Chihir0 is my IMDb user, Migjen is my real name, however you call me it's okay. :)

I made those changes that you suggested. Thank you.

It is really interesting list. I was surprised with most of them. Kubrick, Hitchcock and Fellini are three most surprising. And I was surprised with Welles because of Citizen Kane.

Sorry Jessica. I didn't see your comment at the time. I made the changes now.

Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock are on top two. But Hitchcock was extraordinary director. Psycho (1960) is my second favorite film.
