Best Picture, Director, Acting Oscars

Of the 76 Academy Awards Ceremonies, 19 times the Best Director has been awarded to someone who didn't direct the Best Picture. It happened most at the beginning with 67% of the 20s ceremonies splitting Picture and Director and a split occurring 60% of the time in the 30s. In modern times, a split is likely 10-20% of the time.

While the Director and Picture have been the same 57 times, the Picture, Director, and Leading Actor (Actress) have aligned only 22 times. Only 3 times have the Picture, Director, and both Leading Actor awards gone to the same movie (It Happened One Night, 1934; One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, 1975; and Silence of the Lambs, 1991).
