I guess when I predicted Martin Scorsese to win I was just hoping he would win. The DGA this year went to Michel Hazanavicius for THE ARTIST. Since 1948 there have only been 6 times that the DGA winner did not win the Academy Awards for Best Director. This win only solidifies what we already know.
James Marsh won Best Documentary for PROJECT NIM, one of the biggest Oscar snubs this year.
