Who'll win Best Director at the 2013 Oscars?

Usually Best Picture and Best Director are linked in such a way, that the Academy had to expand the rooster of Best Picture in order to be fair with the directors. Well, I would think that they had to open the Best Director instead, so that you could have filmmakers whose films are not included but who display some of the most impressive directing work in the business. But it is what it is.

This year’s five Oscar nominees include a legend who is already an Oscar winner, two who were previously nominated, and two first timers.

According to the way award season has leaned and reviewing the prognosticators, the Oscar statuette should already be engraved with Cuarón’s name on it, but don’t count out the impressive work of McQueen and the popularity of O’Russell’s ‘American Hustle’.

Here is the list:
Alfonso Cuarón for ‘Gravity
Steve McQueen for ‘12 Years a Slave
Alexander Payne for ‘Nebraska
David O’Russell for ‘American Hustle’
Martin Scorsese for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street

And now, let’s go a little bit deeper into their nominations and body of work.
