The Directors Guild Awards has been an extremely reliable predictor of the Oscar winner for best director over the years. It won't be this year, though.
Ben Affleck, who isn't nominated for a directing Oscar for "Argo," won the DGA Award for feature films Saturday night (Feb. 2). He beat out fellow nominees Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables"), Ang Lee ("Life of Pi") and Steven Spielberg ("Lincoln").
