Hitchcock Named Best Director Never To Win Oscar

ALFRED HITCHCOCK has been named the best director to have never won an OSCAR, in a new poll of British movie fans.

The legendary PSYCHO film-maker was nominated six times between 1941 and 1961 but never received an ACADEMY AWARD.

MARTIN SCORSESE - who is favourite to finally win the top award this year (05) with THE AVIATOR - came second in the list, while A CLOCKWORK ORANGE icon STANLEY KUBRICK came third.

The poll, voted for by viewers of British cable channel TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES (TCM), also featured the biggest stars never to have won a Best Actor Oscar.

PULP FICTION star SAMUEL L JACKSON came top, followed by STEVE McQUEEN and RICHARD BURTON.

CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE actress DEMI MOORE was named the best actress never to have won a Best Actress Oscar followed by MEG RYAN and MARILYN MONROE.

A spokesperson for TCM says, "The poll shows an encouraging amount of support and loyalty from the UK public for many British actors and film-makers."
