Fincher has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director twice (for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network) and has won a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA. Owing to studio interference, Fincher found the production of Alien3 — his feature film debut — to be an incredibly traumatic experience and he has since disowned the film.
