Road to Masterpiece

Visualizing 61 film directors' career on the way to the Oscar's best director

How many movies did directors make before they were acknowledged with the Oscars? How old were they when they won? Road to Masterpiece is a single-page visualization showing the career of 61 Film directors who won Academy Awards for Best Directing from 1941 to 2014. To generate the optimal dataset for this visualization, I used R scripts.
Directors used to be way more productive back in 1940s. Of course there must have been some changes in film industry. 
Did you know what Martin Scorsese had to wait for 44 years to win the Oscars?
