Does anyone know which director has directed the most Oscar winning performances? I searched about and couldn't find the answer up-front, so I thought of some big directors who might hold the title. If anyone knows, let me know. I also may have left some names off...the majority of this was done off the top of my head.

Wyler
Barbra Streisand
Charlton Heston
Hugh Griffith
Burl Ives
Audrey Hepburn
Olivia de Havilland
Harold Russell
Fredric March
Greer Garson
Teresa Wright
Walter Brennan
Bette Davis
Fay Bainter

Kazan
Anthony Quinn
Karl Malden
Vivien Leigh
Kim Hunter
Celeste Holm
James Dunn
Jo Van Fleet
Eva Marie Saint
Marlon Brando

Cukor
Rex Harrison
Judy Holliday
Ronald Colman
Ingrid Bergman
James Steward

Zinnemann
Jason Robards
Vanessa Redgrave
Paul Scofield
Donna Reed
Frank Sinatra
Gary Cooper

Am I forgetting anyone? I know that Eastwood, Scorsese and Allen each have 5.

FYI- Spielberg has never directed an oscar winning performance.

What, no Uwe Boll?
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali
