Directors Guild of America Crowns ‘The Artist’ Helmer Michel Hazanavicius as Best of 2011

29 January 2012 2:55 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

And Michel Hazanavicius and his film The Artist take one more step towards total awards dominance. The film has topped critic lists since it premiered at Cannes in May of 2011, and in the past couple weeks has become an awards juggernaut. Last weekend The Artist won the PGA award [1] for best picture of 2011, and last night Hazanavicius took the Director's Guild award for Outstanding Achievement in Feature Film in 2011. Given that it has been almost a decade since someone won the DGA award and didn't take the Best Director Oscar we can safely bet on the outcome of the Academy Awards [2], which are still a month away. (On average, the DGA award and Oscar go to different people once a decade.) For those disappointed that the documentary Project Nim, from Man on Wire director James Marsh, didn't get an Oscar nod, his win for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary might be considered a great consolation. »

David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen & More Secure DGA Nominations

9 January 2012 10:27 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Directors Guild of America, one of the biggest precursors for the Academy Awards, have announced their nominations today. They are David Fincher for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris, Alexander Payne for The Descendants, Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist and Martin Scorsese for Hugo.

The two biggest snubs would be Terrence Malick for The Tree of Life and Steven Spielberg for War Horse. The latter of the two is more surprising, considering the Academy’s fondness for the blockbuster maker. In better news, Tate Taylor is out of the running for The Help, a film that will likely ride into awards season on its performances and syrupy optimism. Out of the five, I’m surprised Fincher made the cut, considering many perceived Dragon Tattoo to not be an awards contender. Check out more information on the nominees below.
