Oh absolutely. He was in utter and terrible shock when the director's branch refused to nominate him for Best Director and instead nominated the director of a foreign language art film and the director of a Sundance indie.
He admitted to feeling low and that he called up George Clooney (who HAS been nominated for directing) and that Clooney told him such things happen.
But that was his worst career moment I think. He definitely felt the pinch and referred to it throughout the awards season.
