And The Winners Will Be…

Yesterday, the Director’s Guild of America announced their nominees for outstanding directorial achievement in motion pictures. Up on the block this year is Woody Allen, David Fincher, Alexander Payne, Martin Scorsese, and Michel Hazavanicius. Consequently, these nominations seem a worthy foresight for the Academy Award’s Best Picture and Best Director categories. Apparently, the DGA winners have been in accordance with 90% (!!!) of the Oscar winners. Check out the article for more info.

Who will win? Perhaps someone not even mentioned. And where are the likes of Steven Spielberg and Terrence Malick?

Also, be sure to keep an eye out for this year’s wild cards: Steve McQueen (Shame), Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive), Bennett Miller (Moneyball), and Tate Taylor (The Help).
