Oscar 1987: Best Director Race

Every once in a while, foreign filmmakers feature prominently in the Oscar competition. In 1987, for example, all five nominated directors were born outside of the United States: Italian Bertolucci (who won) for The Last Emperor, British John Boorman for Hope and Glory, Swedish Lasse Hallstrom for My Life as a Dog, Canadian-born Norman Jewison for Moonstruck, and British Adrian Lyne for Fatal Attraction.
