Martin Scorsese net worth: Martin Scorsese is an American director, writer and producer who has a net worth of $70 million. Martin Scorsese is widely regarded as one of the greatest living American filmmakers. Martin's success as a filmmaker may have never happened if he not suffered from intense asthma as a child, a condition which prevented him from playing sports and left him with little else to do but watch an endless array of films. He later described this process as an unintentional film school.

Through a combination of his passion for film and his experience of growing up on rough New York streets, Martin was inspired to direct his breakthrough feature 'Mean Streets' which became the first of many collaborations with actor Robert De Niro. After the success of Mean Streets, Martin now had the money he needed to film Taxi Driver, a project which was difficult to get off the ground but which became a surprising box office success and ended up being nominated for several Oscars.

Martin would continue to be nominated for Academy Awards throughout his career but became famous for losing every time, even for classics such as Raging Bull and Goodfellas. His losses for the latter two films are often described as two of the biggest Oscar mistakes of all time. Marty (as he is often referred to by close film friends) finally found Oscar glory in 2006 when he won Best Director for his movie, The Departed.
