The all important Directors Guild nominations were just announced. In years past we would use these nominations to predict best director Oscar noms. This year Oscar ballots are already in. Some directors prefer a DGA because it represents a larger group of their peers votes. The nominees are in alphabetical order:
Katheryn Bigelow-ZERO DARK THIRTY
Tom Hooper-LES MISERABLES
Ang Lee-LIFE OF PI
Snubs: David O’Russell, Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson. I would have preferred anyone else in place of Tom Hooper.
