Fourteen out of twenty.  No love for Wyler (#20), Pasolini (#18), Zinnemann (#10), Kiarostami (#8), Jones (#3), or Flaherty (#1).  One billion animators on the list, but no Chuck Jones?  Doesn't seem fair.

I think Kiarostami might make the list next time we do this, assuming his films become more available in the meantime.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

With regards specifically to all those Pixar animators/directors who made the cut, I couldn't agree with you more.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

I was 19 / 20, but looking back my list kinda sucked.

16 of mine made it. The 4 that did not are John Sayles, DA Pennebaker, Ken Burns, and Christopher Guest.

Hmm, did I know that Wajda didn't make it? Could I be down to 11?
