Every narrative feature film by every Best Director Oscar nominee

Excludes documentaries, short films (that includes when directors are part of anthologies), limited series, filmed plays, most student films, and films considered lost or incomplete (if the incomplete version is feature length, it is likely counted).

The one exception is The Patriot, a 1928 lost film, but it itself was nominated for Best Director so I had to put it here.

Narrative cutoff length is 45 minutes.
