Hitchcock Named Best Director Never To Win Oscar
Alfred Hitchcock has been named the best director to have never won an OSCAR, in a new poll of British movie fans.
The legendary Psycho film-maker was nominated six times between 1941 and 1961 but never received an ACADEMY AWARD.
The poll, voted for by viewers of British cable channel TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES (TCM), also featured the biggest stars never to have won a Best Actor Oscar.
A spokesperson for TCM says, "The poll shows an encouraging amount of support and loyalty from the UK public for many British actors and film-makers."24/01/2005 13:56
