nfortunately, an Academy Award win for Best Director doesn't mean that that directors are impervious to failure. Honestly, it just puts more pressure on them to succeed. Filmmakers are human. They can't make the next Citizen Kane year after year.
That brings us to this list. Below, you'll find a list of cinematic flops that came after Oscar wins. The movies don't need to come immediately after the wins, but there won't be a gargantuan gap in time either. Because of this criteria, certain late-career mishaps have been excluded.
The entries listed below aren't necessarily a reflection of talent. Plenty of the directors either rebounded or still have a chance to rebound. The purpose of the list is as simple as the title. The goal is to name some less-than-stellar films that came from frequently stellar directors.
