DGA Honors ‘The King’s Speech’ Director Tom Hooper as Best Director of 2010

30 January 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Directors Guild of America announced its award winners for achievement in 2010 last night, and the big winner was Tom Hooper, director of The King's Speech. That, in conjunction with the film's victory [1] at the Producers Guild awards, puts the movie as the odds-on favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar, and makes Mr. Hooper a likely win for Best Director as well. The DGA and Academy have gone different ways for Best Director only six times in the past six decades, and I'm not certain this year will make it seven. In Contention [2] points to the difference at the 2003 Oscars, where the relatively young Rob Marshall won the DGA award for Chicago over directors like Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski. But the Academy went with Roman Polanski as Best Director for The Pianist, even as Chicago won Best Picture. So will a more experienced director like Darren Aronofsky, David O. Russell »
