The five Oscar nominees for best director — Kathryn Bigelow for "The Hurt Locker," James Cameron for "Avatar," Lee Daniels for "Precious," Jason Reitman for "Up in the Air" and Quentin Tarantino for "Inglourious Basterds" — are some very familiar faces indeed. Not only have they been regulars on the award circuit this year, but they also all came to The Times last month to participate in The Envelope Directors Roundtable series.
Still, it's hard not to feel that other directors were overlooked. To find out the name of at least one worthy candidate who was not on the list — and learn who is the odds-on favorite to win — watch the above video of Times film critic Kenneth Turan and writer John Horn.
After all, while the nominees could watch from the comfort of home, Turan and Horn had to be at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills well before the crack of dawn Tuesday.
And keep coming back to 24 Frames for more videos today.

i don't care who wins best picture, but i think quentin tarantino should win best director. he was nominated for the same category in 1995 for pulp fiction and lost. this is his time. james cameron won titanic. jason reitman is a sore loser. katheryn bigelow can direct another great movie in the future and win. but this is quentin tarantino's time.
