A strong indicator of who will win the Best Director Oscar in February has arrived this afternoon, as The Directors Guild of America has released nominees for its 2013 awards.
Four DGA and Oscar-directing winners and one newcomer were nominated for the 65th annual award for directorial achievement in feature film for 2012.
Among the directors absent from the list this year are previous DGA Award nominees: Django Unchained’s Quentin Tarantino, Silver Linings Playbook’s David O. Russell, The Master’s Paul Thomas Anderson along with Moonrise Kingdom’s Wes Anderson.
DGA members are often members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Science. »
