    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.
