Check out the five nominees...
There were no major surprises in this year's DGA Nominations. The Directors Guild of America announced the nominees for their 66th Annual DGA Awards today and Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity, Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips), Steve McQueen(12 Years a Slave(, David O. Russell (American Hustle) and Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street) all earned nominations for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film.
Some notable names not nominated include the Coen Brothers for Inside Llewyn Davis, Woody Allen (Blue Jasmine), Alexander Payne (Nebraska), Spike Jonze (Her) and Stephen Frears (Philomena). This year is considered to be a pretty heavy year for potential directing nominees however. The DGA Awards are a decent predictor of the Best Director nominees for the Academy Awards, though there are usually some differences.
The DGA Award winner will be announced on January 25th.
