Producer, writer and director, Joel Coen with brother Ethan, has been nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, plus one individual nomination for each, winning Best Original Screenplay for Fargo and Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for No Country for Old Men.
Besides winning Oscars, many of their movies have been nominated including, Bridge of Spies (2015), True Grit (2010), A Serious Man (2009), O Brother and Where Art Thou? (2000). The brothers made their screen debut in 1984 with Blood Simple, which was the first of many movies with a notably eccentric style.
Of course, there can be no mention of the brothers' movies without a nod to The Big Lebowski, which has developed a cult following culminating with the annual Lebowski Fest and Dudeism, a religion/philosophy/lifestyle inspired by the central character of the movie.
