Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Tim Burton
Award Snub: He's never been nominated for an Oscar as a director. The closest he's come to winning any Oscar was for co-directing Corpse Bride and directing Frankenweenie, which were nominees for Best Animated Feature at the 2006 and 2013 Academy Awards, respectively.
Hype Backlash: Few directors are as blatant and consistent with their Signature Style and Author Appeal, so if his aesthetic isn't what you're looking for, you will experience this — especially with the films that are adaptations. The heavy merchandising his films have gained over the years doesn't help, nor does his association with the Goth and Emo Teen subcultures.
The Hype Backlash is so bad, there are people saying that they won't even see the movies merely because it's being marketed at Hot Topic.
You just know this is going to double back into that other trope one of these days.
Scapegoat Creator: Being a director, almost all of the movies he directed were apparently produced, directed, written, created, etc by only one person: Tim Burton. The only thing he apparently didn't do for the movies was act in them. The most recent backlash was about the recent Alice in Wonderland, which was apparently written by him despite that even looking at the credits or its page on The Other Wiki can tell you otherwise.
