Martin Scorsese is 81 years old, and directed one of the best movies of his career with Killers of the Flower Moon, proving it’s never too late! As long as you have decades of expertise behind you! Anyway, if he wins Best Director he’ll be the oldest winner ever, beating Clint Eastwood, who was 74 when he won for Million Dollar Baby.
