Forman, also known for two biopics about controversial Americans - The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996) and Man on the Moon (1999) - died Friday in the US after a short illness, according to his wife, Martina, who broke the news to the Czech news agency CTK.
Forman first stormed onto the global scene in 1964 with his film Black Peter, followed by The Loves of a Blonde in 1965 (which was nominated for an Oscar for best foreign-language film) and The Firemen's Ball in 1967.
The 1975 adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, secured Forman his first Best Director win at the Academy Awards.
He won a second Oscar for the 1984 extravaganza "Amadeus", a biopic of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, which won a clutch of Academy awards.
"That is the only way to open the film to a certain kind of lightness", he said.
Working with non-actors, Forman once revealed his strategy when making a film - the entire crew must have fun. Both of Forman's parents were killed in Nazi concentration camps. After the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, Forman emigrated to the United States, where he built a brilliant career in the movies.
Hunting for locations, Forman realized Prague was the only European capital that had changed little since Mozart's time, but returning there initially filled him with dread.
After he graduated, Forman directed a number of short documentaries, including Audition (1964), followed by Black Peter and The Loves of a Blonde, two autobiographical films set in small Czech towns.
Writer and producer Larry Karaszewski, who made Man On The Moon and The People vs Larry Flynt with Forman, wrote: "Milos Forman was our friend and our teacher. Not until much later, when I was suddenly far from my homeland and its culture, far away from my family, when I was cut away from the land of my childhood, I realized I shared this strong feeling of affection for my country with them", Forman had said, according to his biography. They were named after comedian Andy Kaufman and Jim Carrey, who played the part of Kaufman in "Man on the Moon".
