With Lumet's Passing, One '50s Best Director Oscar Nominee Left: Michael Anderson

With the passing of Sidney Lumet— a Best Director Oscar nominee for 1957's 12 Angry Men— just one Best Director nominee from the 1950s is still with us: Around the World in 80 Days' Michael Anderson. Anderson, who was nominated for an Oscar just this once for the 1956 Best Picture winner, is 91 years old.
