A Big Congrats to Directors Guild Winner -- Alfonso Cuaron!

27 January 2014 11:06 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Woot woot! My pick to win Best Director at the Oscars took home the Feature Film trophy at the recently concluded Directors Guild of America awards. And it's truly deserving! Cuaron defied gravity, yes pun intended, to create "Gravity," a movie grounded in sci-fi realism that many directors before him (including James Cameron) were saying that it would be hard to do. But Cuaron did it, and did it extremely well! So hats off to "Gravity" and Cuaron's direction!

Here's the complete list of winners of the DGA awards and right after the jump, check out my interview with Cuaron for "Gravity" that we conducted back in October. Oh, and take a look at my interview with the lovely Sandra Bullock as well.

Feature Film:

Winner: Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity")

Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips")

Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave")

David O. Russell ("American Hustle")

Martin Scorsese ("The Wolf of Wall Street »

Alfonso Cuaron wins the DGA Award for Gravity

26 January 2014 10:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night, the Director's Guild of America revealed the winners of the 66th annual DGA Awards, with Alfonso Cuaron taking home the top honour, the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film, for his work on Gravity.

Historically, the winner of the DGA Award goes on to pick up the Oscar, although that wasn't the case last year with Ben Affleck (Argo) losing out to Ang Lee (Life of Pi) at the Academy Awards.

In addition to Cuaron, there were also awards for Jehane Noujaim (Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary - The Square), Vince Gilligan (Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Dramatic Series - Breaking Bad) and Steven Soderbergh (Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television and Miniseries - Behind the Candelabra). Check out the full list of winners below...

The Winners Of The 66th Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards

25 January 2014 6:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tonight, the Directors Guild of America unveiled their choices for outstanding directorial achievement in 2013, and as expected, Alfonso Cuarón took home their top prize for his brilliant work on Gravity, making him the most likely winner of the Best Director Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards.

The question now becomes: Will this be enough to tip Best Picture in Gravity‘s favor? After all, how could you give a film so many Oscars (including Best Director and Best Film Editing) and Not give it Best Picture? Granted, it’s happened before, but rarely to a film receiving this many awards. If the Academy should pass the film over for the top honor, it would become the most honored film not to win the big prize since Cabaret (1972), which won eight Oscars (including Best Director and Best Film Editing) before losing Best Picture to The Godfather.

DGA: Alfonso Cuaron Wins Top Prize for ‘Gravity’

25 January 2014 6:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alfonso Cuaron has won the Directors Guild of America award for feature film for his high-tech space thriller  “Gravity.”

The Mexico native won over Paul Greengrass (“Captain Phillips”), Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”), David O. Russell (“American Hustle”) and Martin Scorsese (“The Wolf of Wall Street”).

“This is truly an honor and I’m humbled by it,” Cuaron said in his acceptance speech. “I still have this teen crush on other directors.”

Cuaron, who spent five years developing “Gravity,” noted that photos from space show that the Earth is “absolutely beautiful” but do not depict the human experience.

“It’s a bizarre experiment of nature, that is the human experience,” he noted. “And it’s what we as directors try to sort out as filmmakers.”

The winner was announced by last year’s winner Ben Affleck at the conclusion of the 66th DGA Awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza Hotel, »

25 January 2014 6:30 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Updated: Gravity does not seem to be falling on the awards circuit. Alfonso Cuarón walked away with the top honor at the Directors Guild of America Awards Saturday night in Los Angeles, beating out Martin Scorsese, David O. Russell, Paul Greengrass, and Steve McQueen.

“This is truly an honor and I am humbled by it,” Cuarón said to the audience of his peers after last year’s winner Ben Affleck presented him with the award. But Gravity was not the work of just one mind, and no one knows that more keenly than Cuarón. “Directing is about the work of your collaborators, »
