Directors Guild of America Nominations for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in 2011

Earlier today Directors Guild of America President Taylor Hackford announced the five nominees for the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2011. It's a solid list of nominations, but I'm surprised that Steven Spielberg isn't on the list for his work on War Horse. I still haven't seen The Artist or The Descendants, but I'm hoping to see those soon.

The directors nominated this year for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film Award have each demonstrated an inspired command of the medium. The fact that their prodigious talents have been recognized by their peers is the highest honor a director can achieve," said Hackford. "I offer my most sincere congratulations to each of the nominees.

The winner will be announced at the 64th Annual DGA Awards Dinner on Saturday, January 28th, 2012, and here are the list of nominations. Who would you like to win the award this year?

David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen & More Secure DGA Nominations

  • The Film Stage
The Directors Guild of America, one of the biggest precursors for the Academy Awards, have announced their nominations today. They are David Fincher for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris, Alexander Payne for The Descendants, Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist and Martin Scorsese for Hugo.

The two biggest snubs would be Terrence Malick for The Tree of Life and Steven Spielberg for War Horse. The latter of the two is more surprising, considering the Academy’s fondness for the blockbuster maker. In better news, Tate Taylor is out of the running for The Help, a film that will likely ride into awards season on its performances and syrupy optimism. Out of the five, I’m surprised Fincher made the cut, considering many perceived Dragon Tattoo to not be an awards contender. Check out more information on the nominees below.
