Paul Thomas Anderson Anderson's previous films have been admired by the Academy, with a total of 14 nominations, five of which went to Anderson himself. But he's never won in any category, and only one of his bids is for directing ("There Will Be Blood"). Considered by many to be one of the best American filmmakers currently working, he'll have another chance at winning writing, directing, and producing Oscars this year for "The Master."
