66th Annual Directors Guild Awards Winners

66th Annual Directors Guild Awards Nominees Announced

As the road to Oscar carries on, the competition for Best Picture is not keeping calm. At the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards, the top honor went to Alfonso Cuarón, who has previous won at the Critics Choice and Golden Globes. 12 Years a Slave and Gravity have been neck and neck, vying for votes and smashing expectations everywhere. With this win, it would seem as though Cuarón has this one in the bag for Best Director, but I wouldn’t count Slave out of the running for Best Picture. Check out the full list of DGA winners after the break. 

Gravity also split the PGA Award for Best Picture with 12 Years a Slave. However, 12 Years a Slave has been gobbling up Best Picture awards at the same events. It will be interesting to see if we get another repeat of last year’s Academy Awards with the Best Director and Best Picture going to two separate movies. Check out the full winners list of the 66th Annual DGA Awards below:
