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.[1][3]
