The Directors Guild Award nominations are out, and Tom Hooper is in.
The Les Miserables director has become a bit of a question mark as reviews for the epic musical have been less than kind, but with Oscar nominations due on Thursday, this nod from his peers in the union comes as a welcome bit of support.
The full list of nominees:
• Hooper, Les Miserables
• Ang Lee, Life of Pi
• Steven Spielberg, Lincoln.
