2012 Directors Guild Awards Winners

The Directors Guild Awards delivered no surprises. The award for Best Director for a Feature Film went to Michel Hazanavicius for "The Artist". The other nominees in this category were Woody Allen ("Midnight in Paris"), David Fincher ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"), Alexander Payne ("The Descendants") and Martin Scorsese ("Hugo"). This latest win comes just a week after the french silent movie was awarded the Producers Guild Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. Both awards are usually solid precursors to the Oscars. From now on it's pretty certain that "The Artist" is locked in for Best Picture and Best Director at the Academy Awards. Another highlight at the DGAs this year was the award for Drama Series, which went to Patty Jenkins for her work on the "Pilot" episode of AMC's "The Killing". Jenkins was attached to direct "Thor 2", but was replaced by Alan Taylor, an experienced TV series director.
