Alejandro G. Inarritu wins DGA Award for The Revenant, full list of winners here

7 February 2016 10:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.

Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.

And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

Fox has also ordered an untitled comedy pilot from writer Chris Case. The interracial family sitcom follows Jay “Havoc” Hammond,  an African-American, ex-nfl lineman who recently moved in with his white wife and her two oddball sons. The potential series will center around him »
