'Memoirs of a Geisha' Director Really, Really Wants an Oscar

Memoirs of a GeishaMovie-maker Rob Marshall hopes his new movie Memoirs of a Geisha wins him an Academy Award in March because he is still bitter about failing to take home his own statuette for Chicago. The director was thrilled when the Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones-starring movie garnered six awards at the 2003 ceremony but insists the Best Picture Oscar, which traditionally honors movie producers, is rightfully his.

And he's calling on organizers to change the rules. He says, "But I didn't get the statuette for Best Picture, that goes to the producer. But now I think about it, the Best Picture should go to the director. They should change the rules."

Unfortunately, the outlook doesn't look good for Marshall. "Memoirs of a Geisha" earned only one Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score. It faces stiff competition with the critically acclaimed Brokeback Mountain, directed by Ang Lee.
