Two scholarly books that are comparative critical studies of Kubrick's work discuss A.I. and even list it in their filmography.[1][2] A book on the making of the film with a foreword by Spielberg also treats the film throughout as effectively a collaboration between Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg.[3] Other scholarly treatments of Kubrick largely ignore the film.[4]

Awards and nominations[edit]

All of Stanley Kubrick's films from Paths of Glory until the end of his career, except for The Shining, were nominated for Academy Awards or Golden Globe Awards, in various categories. 2001: A Space Odyssey received numerous technical awards, including a BAFTA Award for cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth and an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, which Kubrick (as director of special effects on the film) received. This was Kubrick's only personal Academy Award win among 13 nominations. Nominations for his films were mostly in the areas of cinematography, art design, screenwriting, and music. Only four of his films were nominated for either an Academy Award or Golden Globe Award for their acting performances: Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, and A Clockwork Orange.

Personal awards for Kubrick, limited to Academy Awards, British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA), Golden Globe Awards and Saturns, are as follows:
