Michael Mann Entertainment Weekly Omission

I was somewhat taken aback not to see Michael Mann on Entertainment Weekly's top 25 greatest working directors based on, "... the most talented, in-demand filmmakers behind the camera today." Michael Mann didn't feature anywhere. Incredulous. There are numerous other glaring omissions - see if you can spot your favourites missing.  I rather admire Ron Howard actually. Their poor list is as follows:

  1. David Fincher
  2. Christopher Nolan
  3. Steven Spielberg
  4. Martin Scorsese
  5. Darren Aronofsky
  6. Joel and Ethan Coen
  7. Quentin Tarantino
  8. Terrence Malick
  9. Clint Eastwood
  10. Pedro Almodovar
  11. Paul Thomas Anderson
  12. Guillermo del Toro
  13. Roman Polanski
  14. Danny Boyle
  15. Kathryn Bigelow
  16. David O. Russell
  17. David Lynch
  18. James Cameron
  19. Peter Jackson
  20. Edgar Wright
  21. Spike Lee
  22. J.J. Abrams
  23. Brad Bird
  24. Mike Leigh
  25. Wes Anderson
