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.

MARTIN SCORSESE - who is favourite to finally win the top award this year (05) with THE AVIATOR - came second in the list, while A Clockwork Orange icon Stanley Kubrick came third.

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.

PULP FICTION star Samuel L Jackson came top, followed by Steve McQueen and Richard Burton.

Charlie's Angels: FULL THROTTLE actress Demi Moore was named the best actress never to have won a Best Actress Oscar followed by Meg Ryan and MARILYN MONROE.

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."
