Surprisingly Tom Hooper won the DGA for THE KINGS SPEECH. Everyone was sure it was going to be David Fincher for THE SOCIAL NETWORK. This award usually solidifies the Best Picture and Best Director category for the Academy Awards, so does this mean THE KING’S SPEECH could win Best Picture? It seems to be gaining strength after getting the most nominations. It also has a lot of bloggers is an uproar. Sasha Stone from Awardsdaily.com said that she would quite if Hooper won a DGA because she claims now that she knows nothing about the awards race. THE KINGS SPEECH is not a Directors movie. It is more about the acting. It certainly is not better INCEPTION or THE SOCIAL NETWORK. I am sticking with my prediction of THE SOCIAL NETWORK as Best Picture, but only time will tell.
