What kind of a world do we live in where Alfred Hitchcock never won an Oscar?! Hitchcock has become more than just a director; he's an undying, iconic master in the film industry.
Hitchcock's biggest contributions to cinema were his revolutionary approaches to horror and suspense. He inspired many and continues inspiring the film industry today, but never reaped Oscar's benefits. It's no secret that the AMPAS doesn't always make the best decisions, but passing up on awarding Hitchcock an Oscar has no justification. And, nope, that honorary Oscar he received in 1968 doesn't cut it, either.
