How many Best Director Oscars has director Steven Spielberg won? A very good question indeed. The answer to your query is two, and if he wins tonight for Lincoln then three.
Spielberg won in 1994 for Schindler's List, 1999 for Saving Private Ryan.
Spielberg's film War Horse was nominated last year but he was snubeed for Best Director. As for his chances tonight, many think the race is now down to him or Ang Lee for Life of Pi. We'll have to wait a few more hours to find out the results.
