why did alfred hitchcock never win an oscar as best director?

Sometimes it's just luck. Remember that the Oscars are a bunch of individual contests and in any given year there might be someone who is better than a given director.
But the Oscars also tend to like certain pictures. Hitchcock, for all his skill and commercial success, mostly did thrillers. And the thrillers are a genre, along with ones like scifi and horror, that the Oscars have often been reluctant to recognize.

The Oscar's are ridiculous. A sales gimmick really.
