As the Oscars approach to honor excellence from the past year, we're counting down the most talented, in-demand filmmakers behind the camera today -- from Wes Anderson to Kathryn Bigelow and our No. 1

The story is too old to be commented.

From the list and in no order my favorites are

Edgar Wright
Kathryn Bigelow
Danny Boyle
Guillermo del Toro
Quentin Tarantino
Joel and Ethan Coen
Martin Scorsese
Chris Nolan

I actually haven't seen any of Darren Aronofsky's films yet but I have a feeling I'm going to like his work. The rest I just haven't seen enough of their work to judge.

Wow, those are pretty close to what I have especially with the Cohen Brothers. They made No Country For Old Men.

-MD-3730d ago

I like a lot more directors those are just my choices from the list.

No Country for Old Men was a fantastic film. It introduced me to Javier Bardem.

I think absolutely Nolan has to top my list of directors working today. Especially if we're basing it on their modern work (when talking about people like Spielberg, etc.) Though Scorsese can churn out some good stuff still (not to imply Spielberg can't).

Glad JJ Abrams was on there. The new Star Trek is one of my favorite films of the past few years.

The reason why I like the Cohen Brothers was because they decided to make a film adaptation to one the best books I ever read in my time. It was an awesome movie and also introduced my to Javier Bardem.
