How often do the PGA and DGA Awards go to the same film?
After taking the Producers Guild Award two weeks ago, “The Shape of Water” will attempt to add the Directors Guild Award to its haul for Guillermo del Toro on Saturday. Del Toro is the odds-on favorite, according to our predictions, following his Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice wins. The PGA and DGA are powerful precursors — the PGA champ has gone one to win the Best Picture Oscar 19 out of the previous 28 times and the DGA has only mismatched with the Oscars seven times in its 69-year history — but how often has one film won both on the Oscar trail? And what does that mean for Oscar?

Since the PGA Awards’ inception 28 years ago, PGA and DGA have matched 21 times (this includes the PGA tie between “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity,” the latter of which won DGA). Of these 21, 14 of them have gone on to win both Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.
