Of the 93 films that have won Best Picture, 67 have also been awarded Best Director. Only five films have been awarded Best Picture without receiving a Best Director nomination: Wings (1927/28), Grand Hotel (1931/32), Driving Miss Daisy (1989), Argo (2012), and Green Book (2018).
For example, most foreign-made or foreign-language potential nominees for Best Picture have usually been relegated to the Best Foreign Language Film category, a newly-formed category for non-English speaking films that was first awarded for 1956 films (at the 1957 Academy Awards ceremony).

- 1942. Did win: "How Green Was My Valley" Should have won: "Citizen Kane" Perhaps the most egregious mistake came relatively early in Oscars history, with John Ford's coal-country drama – which took five Academy Awards to a lone "Kane" screenplay win – getting the nod over Orson Welles' epic about an eccentric media mogul that is widely regarded as the best movie ever made.
- 1953. Did win: "The Greatest Show on Earth" Should have won: "High Noon" Even with a stellar cast – including Charlton Heston, Dorothy Lamour and Jimmy Stewart – "Greatest Show" is essentially a 152-minute commercial for the circus.
- 1967. Did win: "A Man for All Seasons" Should have won: "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" That year's best picture win went to a rousingly successful Sir Thomas More biopic with a bunch of awards-season gold.
- 1974. Did win: "The Sting" Should have won: "The Exorcist" Both were huge hits that came in with 10 nominations, and Robert Redford and Paul Newman's ragtime-tinged con-man caper was the safe choice.
