For over 90 years, the Oscars have been like the biggest party in Hollywood, where the best of the best hope to win one of those shiny gold statues.

Just being nominated is a big deal, but taking home an Oscar is on a whole other level, especially if you're up for one of the Big Five awards.

Winning the Best Director award is huge, like a dream come true, but there's an even smaller group of super talented directors who've won it not just once, but twice or more, including famous names like Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood, and legends from the past like Frank Capra and Billy Wilder; these directors have managed to stand out in a really crowded and competitive field, telling stories that make us laugh, cry, think, and dream.

Their movies are the kind that stick with you, the ones you want to watch over and over because there's always something new to find in the way they put their scenes together, choose their actors, and guide them to give performances that sometimes even surprise the actors themselves; it's like they have a magic touch for turning a good story into an unforgettable film.

So, this list is all about celebrating those directors who've climbed to the top of the mountain not just once but at least twice, showing that they're not just lucky but really, really good at what they do; it's for anyone who loves movies and wants to know more about the people behind the camera who make the magic happen.

The Oscars 2024 will be held Sunday, March 10, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
