As time goes bye this list's title will change until it reaches 90 Years of Animation.
New updated: if that person who was not nominated for an Oscar did work as a producer of another person's film, that person is added to this list. The same goes for the crew and cast. The last rows are directors who did Academy Award films that were originally created by Merian C. Cooper, Arthur C. Clarke, Mark Millerand Gene Roddenberry to others that are Best Adapted Screenplay directors only.
Update: Under some of them are thanks to Executive producer credits by them for other Academy Awards films
New Update: I now add their Academy Award nominated and winner films under some of them.
Newest Update: I add Stanley Donen under the rows of script writers due to he won an Honorary Award while making Academy Award films without being nominated.
Final Updated: The last rows are other directors or producers that mostly won Academy Honorary Awards and are directors, writers and producers who while making Oscar films didn't get nominated but were part of the Academy Awards' Memorial tributes and are being declared legends of film making or in film by the Academy. Rows 467-483 are other directors to producers who mostly get Honorary Awards from the Academy and rows 484-559 are directors to writers or actor/directors who made, have some involvement with or star in Academy Award nominated films and were never nominated for Best Director, Picture Screenplay or Acting but were in the Academy Awards' In Memorial tributes (TV and Online version (which shows that it has gotten better now)). Also I have other directors that have died but would have being in the Academy Awards' In Memorial, if it was invited at that time.
New Updated: I have now added Christopher Guest, Anne Fletcher and Adam Shankman who also help with the Academy Awards' ceremonies while making some Academy Award nominated films

Django Unchained (2012)
Quentin Tarantino's best next to Pulp Fiction and a good tribute to not only western films, but the directors who mentor Quentin.
This movie to me is one of the best movies of 2012 and Quentin Tarantino's best movie that is great as his other masterpiece Pulp Fiction. The story is about a slave Jango (the "D" is silent) played by Jamie Foxx rescued by a bounty hunter (played by Quentin Tarantino's lucky acting cram Christoph Waltz in another best acting role of his). They soon become partners in the bounty hunting bushiness and plan to rescue Django's wife held as a slave by the villainous Leonardo DiCaprio (in a great role of his career) and the evil and sneaky Samuel L. Jackson (who turns out is the real brains behind this slave ring). The action is great and pretty funny like most Quentin's films and it is not only a great tribute to Spaghetti Westerns by Quentin, but to me a great tribute to the two directors who help Mr. Tarantino make his first movie Tony Scott and Ulu Grosbard who died on the year of this film's release before it came out. I notice the tributes to them in this film more than other people did. For Ulu Grosbard, Quentin pay tributes to his films such as True Confessions (the partnership with Dr. King Schultz and Django), Falling in Love (Django and his wife's romance), The Deep End of the Ocean (Broomhilda surprised to have finally meet Django again) and Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? (in scenes including Jamie Foxx in a snow hill scene in the same way as Dustin Hoffman in the movie). For Tony Scott, it was mostly the action scenes (especially the big battle in Candy Land) are tributes to his films True Romance, Enemy of the State, The Last Boy Scout and Domino. What should of make the film better is that the credits should of have "Dedicated to Ulu and Tony" the same as Clint Eastwood dedicated Unforgiven to Sergio Leone and Don Siegel. But along with "In Memory of Sally Menke and J. Michael Riva". That was the only thing that I criticize the movie about is Quentin should of dedicated his movie to Tony Scott, Ulu Grosbard, Sally Menke and J. Michael Riva who died before the film was release. Over all, this is still a great movie and very good tributes to Western and Tony Scott and Ulu Grosbard. I say its worth checking out, if you love colorful funny bloody action and Quentin films you will love it. Its funny, action packed, original and has good acting and action.
What happens when you combined the elements of the Coen Brothers with Laurel-and-Hardy and Home Alone, you get Mousehunt
This is one of my favorite comedies that I love and this is the film that made audiences skip Home Alone 3, to see this. While I love Home Alone and I am a fan of slap stick, this film is much better with the slap stick than Home Alone 3. This film is is the debut of Gore Verbinski (famous for the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and Rango) who does a really good job at mixing the elements of the Coen Brothers with Laurel-and-Hardy and John Huges in this funny movie. Although I love John Huges and I am one of his fans, Gore Verbinski had beating him in that year for the funniest slap stick movie. The humor is golden and laugh out loud and it has some wonderful Christopher Walken moments in it. If you are a fan of Home Alone and want something new in the slap stick world besides Home Alone 3. Rent this movie, it is a very funny film you and your kids will enjoy and laugh.
12 Years a Slave (2013)
Best movie since Schindler's List and the slave version of it.
Just saw it last week and was really powerful and a masterpiece as Schindler's List. The story is haunting and makes you feel you are in that time period. I really want this win Best Picture for the 86th Academy Awards and also win for Best Director Steve McQueen and have him become the first black director to win Best Director. Why? The acting from the main character is amazing, as well as Michael Fassbender who plays a crazy religious drunk slave owner and is become one of the best actors of the 21st century. The direction by Steve McQueen is gold and the best I have seen since Steven Spilberge for Saving Pravite Ryan and again Schindler's List and Tom Hooper for The King's Speech. The other stuff that I like was the music score by Hans Zimmer while although it feels the same as he did Inception, it is haunting and powerful as his scores to The Thin Red Line and Galdiator. The script by Undercover Brother's John Ridley which is pure gold and some of the art and costumes as well. If you are looking for a good movie that goes with Schindler's List and Grave of the Firefiles. This is a masterpiece to go see and put in that collection.
The Haunting (1999)
Like Comic Book Guy would say, Worst Remake EVER!
After seeing a trailer to the original movie of this. I find this remake is insulting to the original and the great Robert Wise. The story is too Disneyish, that idiot Jan de Bont thinks he can do good but make things crap. The CGI is cartoon, Liam Neleson is really bad in this (and this goes as one of his worst performances next the Clash of the Titans remake), Owen Willson is so annoying that he makes you castrate yourself and this whole power of love thing is getting tired and makes me angry. And to make things bad, the great Steven Spielberg who was influenced by Robert Wise had involvement in it. But lucky after this abomination, he announced that he will never work with Jan de Bont forever and has the same thing as George Lucas has with the Star Wars Holiday Special which is prevented this film to be released on Blu-ray and it's a good thing Spielberg had his named uncredited in this awful movie. Which means that Steven Spielberg is the guy who said that The Lost World and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is okay, while this remake is the project is the thing that he is personally ashamed of. Let me repeat that again. The Lost World and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: okay. The remake of The Haunting: Personally ashamed of. My advice see the original Haunting it is more better, it has a good ghost story, great Psychology horror, has better character development and has no cartoon CGI, annoying characters, and stupid Disney good vs evil story in which piece of garbage has and should never be on DVD or Blu- ray.
Little Monsters (1989)
A miserable film
I have to agree with The Nostalgia Critic, after seeing Little Monsters. It is not funny and is a miserable and depressing movie. At first when I saw the cover of the movie, I thought this might not be bad. But when I saw boy was I wrong. Here are the problems why this film is miserable and not funny. Fred Savage plays a awful kid who gets his mean-spirited nature from cruel dad played by Daniel Stern (not even this half-ass Wonder Years reunion could save it). The pranks are super awful especially the putting plastic on the toilet which is really cruel to women. Howie Mandel (even though he is trying to be funny and is close) plays the same monster who's weakness is light from Joe Dante's Gremlins but with a style of being the second member to the Supernatural Fast Talking Annoying Dick Club (the first was with Beetlejuice to it's newest member Wilfred the Dog). The script is somehow written by newcomers at that time the writer duo Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott (who would latter write more classical children films like Aladdin (where that film got it's supernatural annoying dick from), the first Shrek movie and Treasure Planet) who wrote this to punish kids or maybe hatted kids at that time. The monster world is too dark and red for a kid's film while going under the bed is interesting. The visuals are too scary to be a PG rating. Also the film need to be a PG-13 rating also to the language and this was back then when the people who rating films were not well and were too lazy. Finally, it has measurable things like kids being blamed and yelled from their at for the pranks Fred Savage and Howie Mandel made (oh my god!) and it's also good not to see some of the parents beat them up. Then to make it more miserable it has separation which kids really don't need to see their film until it has a better idea and is not too measurable. Lastly it is very too mean-spirited for a comedy (sometimes it can work if it has a meaning and this film doesn't) and kid's thing. And is on the the awful mean-spirited media next to Drop Dead Fred, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Wilfred which are things I can't stand. This film is know to start the downfall of Fred Savage's fame and staring in movies (if though The Wizard was bad, this is worst) and Howie Mandel appearing in fewer movies. I have to say this film is the evil big brother to Pixar's Monsters, Inc. and if you want a good family film to watch with kids, watch Monsters, Inc. instead of this depression piece of crap that can scar and frighting your kids to pain.
