Who's the best director in Hollywood history? You could look at who's won the most Best Director Oscars -- that would be legendary John Ford, whose four wins include "The Grapes of Wrath," and "The Quiet Man" -- but perhaps there's another metric with which to judge. Moviefone took another look at Oscar statistics by counting which directors' films have resulted in the most acting nominations. By that count, Ford -- and famous directors like Francis Ford Coppola, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, and Clint Eastwood -- don't even make the Top 10. Who's directed the most actors to a nomination? The list might surprise you.
