Which 2014 Oscar-Nominated Director Should Direct Your Life?

You got: Alexander Payne

You're funny, but you're dark. That twisted sense of humor will serve you well when life is boring, which — let's face it — is most of the time. You feel a little stuck in your ways and may be looking for a change. Expect the movie of your life to look something like Nebraska, About Schmidt, or Election.

Your life isn't easy, perhaps because you're screwing up, or the world is screwing it up for you. Either way, things feel hopeless sometimes. And yet, you're able to see the beauty amid all the ugliness: There are striking visuals all around you. Expect the movie of your life to look something like 12 Years a Slave or Shame.

You got: Spike Jonze

In many ways, you're hip and ahead of the curve, but that doesn't mean you're happy. In fact, there's a melancholy tone to much of what you do. And while you still have fun, it's often bittersweet. You're aggressively indie. Expect the movie of your life to look something like Her, Adaptation, or Being John Malkovich.

You know how to have fun, but you can be tough to pin down. Your day-to-day life is all over the place. While you're usually the good kind of quirky, sometimes you're actually out of control. Expect the movie of your life to look something like American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, or I Heart Huckabees.

You got: Alfonso Cuarón

You have a keen sense of adventure, which serves you well when you find yourself in dangerous or stressful situations. Your imagination is one of your greatest assets: You sometimes see the world not as it is, but as it could be. Expect the movie of your life to look something like Gravity, Children of Men, or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

You got: Martin Scorsese

You are a big ball of energy — sometimes for good, sometimes for not-so-good. Your tendency to go to extremes can easily get you into trouble, and you often find yourself in bad situations. If you're lucky, you'll find redemption. Expect the movie of your life to look something like The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed, or Taxi Driver.
