Now that I mentioned it that's absolutely what would happen. Hell now I want it too because it would be a great moment.
I think De Niro would definitely step aside if he won. It's all moot, as I'm pretty sure Scorcese actually directed The Good Shepherd, kind of like how "George Clooney" directed Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
You're probably being rough on DeNiro and Clooney's directing - though obviously DeNiro is heavily Scorcese tinged, like Clooney is with Soderbergh. Actually, DeNiro has done one movie before - A Bronx Tale, which was also pretty good and shares some similarities to Good Shepherd though it's subtle. He's gotten a lot better since then and had a ridiculous cast this time.
As a side note, "Confessions of a Dangeous Mind" is one of my absolute favorites.

Although it would be FUCKED UP if DeNiro won a directing award before Scorcese. DeNiro might literally refuse on stage.
The Academy Awards are the biggest joke in Hollywood. I will never understand why anyone cares about them. Still, it pains me to see that Scorcese always gets snubbed. I've heard he really wants the best director award. Kind of like Joey Ramone wanting into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame so bad. But if I were him I wouldn't want it for The Departed. He'll probably win but it will really be for screwing him over for Raging Bull and Goodfellas. Keep in mind these are the same people who declared that Ordinary People was better than Raging Bull, that Forrest Gump was better than Pulp Fiction, that The English Patient was better than Fargo among other atrocious declarations. But again I'm pulling for Scorecese because he wants and deserves it.

"I'm pretty sure we have a mistrial here..."
"I'll mistrial my foot up your ass!"

"Please state your name!"
"I'm not sure..."
"Your name - SURE, NOT - is now being permanently tattooed on your arm"

Aguirre Wrath of God is one of the best movies ever.
I might go out of my way to see Aguirre. Bonus (for art freaks like me) is the Matthew Barney Cremaster weird-fest going on concurrently.
