Encyclopedia > Academy Award for Directing

The Academy Award for Directing is one of the awards given to directors working in the motion picture industry by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Nominations are made by Academy members in the Directing branch, while the winners are chosen by the Academy membership as a whole.[citation needed] Since the inception of this award, 58 of the 79 Oscars for Best Director were for films that also won the Oscar for Best Picture.[1] Following the Academy's practice, the films below are listed by the years of their Los Angeles qualifying run, which is usually (but not always) in the year of release; for example, the Oscar for "Best Direction in 1999" was announced during the award ceremony held in 2000.

In the Academy Awards' first year, for films released in 1927/28, there were two directing awards -- one for "Dramatic Direction" and one for "Comedy Direction." The Comedy Direction award was eliminated the next year and, indeed, the awards have overwhelmingly favored dramatic films ever since.


The earliest years of the award are marked by inconsistency and confusion. In the Academy Awards' first year, actors and others such as cinematographers were nominated for all of their films produced during the qualifying period. However, since the directing award was for "directing" rather than "best director", it honored the director in association with only a single film -- thus Janet Gaynor has two Frank Borzage films listed after her Best Actress nomination, but only one of them earned Borzage a directing nomination. The second year, the directing award followed the others in listing all of a director's work during the qualifying period, resulting in Frank Lloyd being nominated for three of his films -- but, even more confusingly, only one of them was listed on the final award as the film for which he won. Finally, for the 1931 awards, this confusing system was replaced by the modern system in which a director is nominated for a single film. Janet Gaynor (October 6, 1906 – September 14, 1984) was an American actress who, in 1928, became the first winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress. ...

Academy Award (706 words)
The Awards are granted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a professional honorary organization which as of 2002 had over 6000 members.
Academy Awards are nicknamed "Oscars", which is also the nickname of the statuette (the name is said to have been born when Margaret Herrick[?] saw the statuette on a table and said: "It looks just like my uncle Oscar!").
The awards were first given at a banquet in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on May 16, 1929 but there was little suspense since the winners of the awards had already been announced three months earlier on February 18.
