For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.
Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.
And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.
Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

Fifteen years after Denzel Washington won an Academy Award for playing a morally corrupt detective in Training Day, that film's director Antoine Fuqua will helm a reboot of the Los Angeles police drama, only this time for television. CBS has ordered a pilot for the Training Day reboot, which takes place 15 years after the action of the film, with Fuqua on board to direct the episode.
However, as opposed to the original film – where Washington's Alonzo Harris attempted to corrupt straight-laced officer Jake Hoyt, played by Ethan Hawke – the series »
Yep, there's an "Angry Birds" movie coming this May -- taking the birds vs. pigs game, giving it a loose plot, and selling it to kids, their parents, and any other adults who like underdog stories and pee jokes.
A teaser trailer came out last September, but the first official trailer just dropped, focusing on a bird with anger issues named Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis). Red is the only one who recognizes that the new pigs in town are up to no good. And Red seems to be angry because he's bullied for his eyebrows and treated like an outcast -- like Rudolph if Rudolph just snapped one day.
The trailer takes us through the basics of the story, as Red and his fellow outsider buddies Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride) try to figure out what the green pigs are up to. Along the way, they visit »

Batman: Bad Blood, 2016.
Directed by Jay Oliva.
Featuring the voice talents of Jason O’Mara, Sean Maher, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Robin Atkin Downes, Vanessa Marshall, Bruce Thomas, Matthew Mercer, Jason Spisak, Travis Willingham and Kari Wahlgren.
One of Batman’s most well-known traits in the modern era of comics is the number of sidekicks or extended members of the Bat-family he has. I’m not just speaking of the various characters who have held the Robin mantle, but Batwing, Batwoman and several Batgirls. DC’s latest animated movie has brought together most of Gotham’s protectors together after Bruce Wayne is presumed dead, leaving Gotham defenseless without the real Batman. »

2015 saw the start (or at least official dubbing) of #PeakTV, a recognition of the wealth of excellent television available to fans of the medium. This is reflected in PopOptiq’s staff list for the year: While our site-wide list separated neatly into a consensus just-over Top 20, 50 separate series received votes. Series from each of the networks and a wide range of cable channels and streaming services were nominated, showing just how wide an array of viewing options are available, and the variety of topic, tone, and theme of the series comprising the list is truly refreshing. 2015 is the year the glut of quality television threatened to overwhelm even the biggest TV fans. Here are the 20+ that stood out to our staff.
