The Directors Guild Nominations

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) has announced their list of the best director of the past year.  And they are...
  • Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris (Sony Pictures Classics)
  • David Fincher, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Columbia Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures)
  • Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist (The Weinstein Company)
  • Alexander Payne, The Descendants (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
  • Martin Scorsese, Hugo (Paramount Pictures)
Pretty surprising not to see Steven Spielberg's name on the above short list.  He came out with two big movies in the last month.  But great to see two of the living legends of American cinema, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese still at it.  And a big hurray to David Fincher for making the list despite the not-so-promising box office stats.  One of these days, he is definitely going to win it.  This year, I feel it's a competition between The Artist and Hugo.
