Directors Guild of America President Taylor Hackford today announced the five nominees for the DGA
Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2010.
“2011 marks the 75th anniversary of the DGA
, making the celebration of this year’s five nominees especially meaningful,” said Hackford. “Their inspired films radiate the passion and unique vision of each of these filmmakers, who are about to become part of our Guild’s rich history. My sincerest congratulations to all five nominees.”
Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film has traditionally been one of the industry’s most accurate barometers for who will win the Best Director Academy Award; only six times since the DGA
Awards began in 1948 has the Feature Film winner not gone on to win the corresponding Academy Award.
The winner will be named at the 63rd Annual DGA
Awards Dinner on Saturday, January 29, 2011, at the Grand Ballroom of Hollywood & Highland.
