Personal Quote:

To get an Oscar would be an incredible moment in my career, there is no doubt about that. But the Lord of the Rings films are not made for Oscars, they are made for the audience. See more »

Trivia:

Along with his wife Fran Walsh, he was one of three husband/wife teams to be nominated for an Oscar for the 2003 season, the others were Michael McKean and his wife, Annette O'Toole and Shari Springer Berman and her husband Robert Pulcini. Jackson and Walsh won Oscars while the other couples walked out of the award with no Oscars. See more »

Trademark:

Well known on-set for insisting on lots of coverage (filming the scene from many different angles), his attention to detail, and being a bit of a perfectionist, especially on the "Lord of the Rings" films, where he would spend days shooting a single scene. See more »
