Who WILL Win Academy Award for Best Director: Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino has never won an Oscar for Best Director. That’s something you have to take into account when looking at the field for this year’s Academy Awards. He’s won twice for screenwriting, but the man who (like it or not) is probably the quintessential director of this era, however you want to define that, has never been honored for directing. Deserving as he may be, he does have competition. There are some dudes — it’s always dudes, isn’t it? — named Martin Scorsese and Clint Eastwood who might have something to say about his ascension to the front of this race though.
