A Big Congrats to Directors Guild Winner -- Alfonso Cuaron!

Woot woot! My pick to win Best Director at the Oscars took home the Feature Film trophy at the recently concluded Directors Guild of America awards. And it's truly deserving! Cuaron defied gravity, yes pun intended, to create "Gravity," a movie grounded in sci-fi realism that many directors before him (including James Cameron) were saying that it would be hard to do. But Cuaron did it, and did it extremely well! So hats off to "Gravity" and Cuaron's direction!

Here's the complete list of winners of the DGA awards and right after the jump, check out my interview with Cuaron for "Gravity" that we conducted back in October. Oh, and take a look at my interview with the lovely Sandra Bullock as well.

Feature Film:

Winner: Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity")

Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips")

Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave")

David O. Russell ("American Hustle")

DGA: Alfonso Cuaron Wins Top Prize for ‘Gravity’

DGA: Alfonso Cuaron Wins Top Prize for ‘Gravity’
Alfonso Cuaron has won the Directors Guild of America award for feature film for his high-tech space thriller “Gravity.”

The Mexico native won over Paul Greengrass (“Captain Phillips”), Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”), David O. Russell (“American Hustle”) and Martin Scorsese (“The Wolf of Wall Street”).

“This is truly an honor and I’m humbled by it,” Cuaron said in his acceptance speech. “I still have this teen crush on other directors.”

Cuaron, who spent five years developing “Gravity,” noted that photos from space show that the Earth is “absolutely beautiful” but do not depict the human experience.

“It’s a bizarre experiment of nature, that is the human experience,” he noted. “And it’s what we as directors try to sort out as filmmakers.”

The winner was announced by last year’s winner Ben Affleck at the conclusion of the 66th DGA Awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza Hotel,

So, that was...long. The 55th Annual Grammy Awards was its usual jam-packed self, with host LL Cool J deftly shepherding the three and a half-hour broadcast from concert mode to ceremony and back again while both fresh (Frank Ocean, Gotye, fun.!) and familiar (Adele, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Rihanna again!) folks took to the stage to accept their accolades or rock the house.
