Awards and nominations
The Academy Awards, most commonly referred to as the Oscar, is an annual ceremony established by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. Sixteen films directed by Hitchcock received an Oscar nomination, though only five of those were assigned to him. Along with Robert Altman, Clarence Brown and King Vidor, he is tied for the most nominations in the category of Best Director – five a piece – without a win. However, four of his films also earned Best Picture nominations ( Foreign Correspondent in 1941, Suspicion in 1942 and Spellbound in 1946, plus winning Rebecca from 1941). The total number of Oscar nominations (including winners) earned by films he directed is fifty.
- A Rebecca won the Academy Award for Outstanding Production (now called the Best Picture category) though the award went the production company Selznick International Pictures not Hitchcock himself.
- B Won John Ford for his direction of The Grapes of Wrath.

Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award

The prize, named after a legendary head of the Production Division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, is not given each year (in earlier years, some individuals were honored more than once). Rather than the familiar "Oscar" statuette, its trophy is in the form of a solid bronze bust of Thalberg. Hitchcock was awarded in 1968. His acceptance speech, in its entirety, was "Thank you... very much indeed."
