Directors : Average age of Best Director nominees

Average age of Best Director nominees

There is a clear upward trend. What accounts for it? Are less young people becoming directors or just less talented people or do people now take longer to make a good film? Has film lost some of its prestige? Do kids dream of being directors anymore? Even being actors? Or would they prefer to be YouTube and TikTok stars?

Re: Average age of Best Director nominees

It's the insider nature of Hollywood nowadays where awards are won based on who you know, and older directors know more people. That and Hollywood started honoring the careers of older oversighted directors than honoring what might be the real best picture.
