you need to put kundun on the list...2-0-sixx I believe he won for kundun
I don't think so. I remember leading up to the Oscars after he made Aviation the talk was he'd never won best picture and he'd probably get it for that, but of course didn't.

Scorsese's Oscar Losing Streak Departs

Sun., Feb. 25, 2007 11:14 PM PST by Sarah Hall

It took three decades and eight nominations, not to mention close to four hours of awards show banter, but Martin Scorsese's Oscar moment finally arrived, courtesy of The Departed.

The legendary filmmaker's long-running, well-chronicled losing streak officially came to an end at the 79th Annual Academy Awards when he was named Best Director, while his South Boston thriller earned the title of Motion Picture of the Year.

[...]

Scorsese had previously been nominated five times for directing and twice for screenplays.

[...]

The Departed won four awards in all, more than any other film. In addition to Best Picture and Director, the mob epic picked up Best Adapted Screenplay for William Monahan's script and Best Film Editing for Scorsese crony Thelma Schoonmaker.

So yeah, that's right. I thought departed was a good film, but no where near as good as a number of his other films. I think it was kind of a way of just giving him the award since he deserved it for so a number of other projects.
