Oscar-winning director Milos Forman — best known for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Amadeus” — passed away on Saturday at the age of 86, and the filmmaker was immediately championed on Twitter as the news spread.

Writer Larry Karaszewski, who worked with the director on “The People vs Larry Flynt,” said he will “miss his laughter.”

And speaking of Flynt, he said he’ll “always be grateful” the “remarkable” director told his story.

Ava DuVernay said she enjoyed many of Forman’s films, but that she’ll be watching “Ragtime” in his honor today.

“Baby Driver” director Edgar Wright tweeted he’d seen “Cuckoo’s Nest” so many times he could “silently mouth along with the movie.”

And Antonio Banderas called Forman a “genius of cinematography.”

Here are just a few others who paid tribute.
