Oscar is considered to be the most prestigious film awards and is a dream of every person who is associated with the film industry to hold that golden trophy once in their hands. Though this award is prestigious there has been a certain winner who have literally dropped the jaws and made people wondering that how they got it?

Here is a handful of biggest blunders made by the committee of Oscar.

Victor Fleming For “Gone With The Wind’

Gone With The Wind is no doubt a very popular classic and holds a record of selling most tickets sold and for that Victor Fleming had won the Best Directors award in the Oscar. But a lot of people think that Victor was not the only one who deserved the award. Gone With The Wind was made by a trilogy of directors and Victor was one of the directors who had worked on the film. So the award should have been shared between the three rather than just given to Victor Fleming alone.

The Greatest Show On Earth

Cecil B DeMille has been known as a key figure in the history of American cinema, but this doesn’t mean that all his films were great. His film The Greatest Show on Earth is a very gaudy circus story but it had still managed to bag the award for the Best Picture at the Oscars in 1953.

Around The World In 80 Days

At times it’s just not that the Academy only goes wrong with the winner, but sometimes it also goes wrong with the whole damn ceremony. The year was 1957 and during that period a lot of epic films had been released such as ‘The Searchers’, ‘Written on the Wind’ and ‘Forbidden Planet’. But that year Oscar had nominated some epical crud films such as ‘Around The World In 80 Day’, ‘Giant’, ‘The King and I’ and ‘The Ten Commandments’. Eventually, the turgid family romp “Around The World In 80 Days’ won the award for the Best Picture.

Majorly if the direction of the movie is not right then the movie will not be perfect. So here are some movie directors which are considered to be the best directors working in Hollywood now.

Martin Scorsese

Right from ‘Mean Streets’ to ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Scorsese is well known for taking up challenging projects and genres. He is the only director working for more than 40 years and still he hasn’t lost his touch either with the audience or the critics.

Richard Linklater

If you really wish to learn about the beauty of life and its small insignificant moments, then take some time and watch movies of this guy. Richard has closely observed life which is incredibly enlightening. This can be experienced in his films like Before Sunrise/Sunset/ Midnight and Boyhood which are nothing but extracts out of ordinary life. No fancy story telling, no car crashes, no heroes, no villains, his movies just have humans flawed and real.

David Fincher

Fincher started his career as a music video director and from there on he just didn’t stop and went on to make some very big cult movies of all time. He seem to be much more attracted towards the the darker aspects of life and he surely does manage to pull it very well in his style. Then let it be his classics such as Fight Club, Se7en or his later films such as Zodiac, The Social Network and the most recently Gone Girl.
