DGA Nominations Are Announced

Directors Guild of America President Taylor Hackford today announced the five nominees for the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2010.

“2011 marks the 75th anniversary of the DGA, making the celebration of this year’s five nominees especially meaningful,” said Hackford. “Their inspired films radiate the passion and unique vision of each of these filmmakers, who are about to become part of our Guild’s rich history. My sincerest congratulations to all five nominees.”

The DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film has traditionally been one of the industry’s most accurate barometers for who will win the Best Director Academy Award; only six times since the DGA Awards began in 1948 has the Feature Film winner not gone on to win the corresponding Academy Award.

The winner will be named at the 63rd Annual DGA Awards Dinner on Saturday, January 29, 2011, at the Grand Ballroom of Hollywood & Highland.

Remember Me: Emilie de Ravin

Filming on the streets of New York City is never easy for movies big or small, and it definitely doesn't help when one of the co-stars is possibly the most photographed, written about, and stalked actor in the world. The cast and crew of Remember Me, a romantic drama that's the story of two emotionally traumatized college students from different backgrounds, got a chance to find out just the kind of chaos that ensues when your romantic leads are Twilight's Robert Pattinson and Lost's Emilie de Ravin. Director Allen Coulter explained, "We found ourselves in a situation with the movie that we never expected to be in, particularly... we had no idea we were going to be using Rob Pattinson.
