Oscar Directors: Fellini, Federico
Italian Federico Fellini, a master of world cinema, had never won a merit directorial Oscar, despite four nominations: “La Dolce Vita,” in 1961, “81/2″ in 1963, “Satyricon” in 1970, and “Amarcord” in 1975.
Fellini was older (41) than his American peers at his first nomination. Moreover, like other foreign directors, he had not been nominated for his earlier masterworks, “La Strada” and “Nights of Cabiria,” though both films had won the Best Foreign-Language Picture Oscar in 1956 and 1957, respectively.
Fellini received an Honorary Oscar in 1993, which was basically a compensatory gesture; he died several months later.
