Frank Lloyd

Frank William George Lloyd (2 February 1886 – 10 August 1960) was a Scottish-American film director, scriptwriter and producer. He was among the founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and was its president from 1934-35. Frank Lloyd was born in Glasgow, Scotland. His mother Jane was Scottish and his father Edmund was Welsh. Frank Lloyd is Scotland’s first Academy Award winner and is unique in film history, having received three Oscar nominations in 1929 for his work on a silent film (The Divine Lady), a part-talkie (Weary River) and a full talkie (Drag). He won for The Divine Lady. He was nominated and won again in 1933 for his adaptation of Noël Coward’s Cavalcade and received a further Best Director nomination in 1935 for perhaps his most successful film, Mutiny on the Bounty. Lloyd was nominated five times for the Academy Award for Best Directing, for Weary River (1929), The Divine Lady (1929), Drag (1929), Cavalcade (1933), and Mutiny on the Bounty (1935). He won for The Divine Lady and Cavalcade. In 1957 he was awarded the George Eastman Award, given by George Eastman House for distinguished contribution to the art of film. Frank Lloyd was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
