DGA Nominations Honor Steven Spielberg, Ben Affleck And More

8 January 2013 6:13 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every year, the Director’s Guild of America does incredibly well in acting as an indicator for the Best Director Academy Award. Their nominations usually match up to what the Academy chooses and more often than not, so does their winner. This year, the Guild is honouring Ben Affleck, Kathryn Bigelow, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg with nominations.

While those are all excellent choices, there are some very obvious omissions. David O. Russell anyone? What about Quentin TarantinoDjango Unchained and Silver Linings Playbook are two of the year’s best films and if I was voting, I would put Russell and Tarantino in over Hooper and Lee. But that’s just my opinion. I would also say that Paul Thomas Anderson deserves to be up there more than Ben Affleck does.

You can check out the full list below but as we wait to hear who the Guild will choose, »
