The Directors Guild of America rewards Damien Chazelle for “La La Land”

6 February 2017 6:19 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, a trio of big precursors announced their winners. Specifically, it was late Saturday night and the precursors in question were the Directors Guild of America, the American Society of Cinematographers, and the Annie Awards. They continue to move this season along towards its end point. There’s still some big precursors coming our way, though these were notable in their own right, especially DGA, which is one of the biggest each season. Two of the three went as expected, while one provided an upset. Read on to see which was which, and sit tight for more precursors in the final days and weeks before the big show… Of main note were Damien Chazelle continuing his all but undefeated run with a win at the DGA awards.

La La Land And Game Of Thrones Win Big At The Director’s Guild Of America Awards

5 February 2017 12:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Awards season is really starting to heat up now with the Oscars on the horizon. They’ll take place on February 26th and a clear frontrunner is beginning to emerge in the form of La La Land. The film has been cleaning up for a while and last night, it snagged another big prize, as director Damien Chazelle took home the top honor (Best Feature Film) at the Director’s Guild of America Awards.

Though the 32-year-old faced tough competition in the form of Denis Villeneuve for Arrival, Barry Jenkins for Moonlight, Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester by the Sea, and Garth Davis for Lion, he had no trouble winning over voters and is now a clear favorite as we inch closer to the Oscars. It’s well earned, too, as La La Land is truly an incredible film and Chazelle deserves all the praise he’s getting for it.
