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.

Official Trailer for ‘The Informant’ Releases

The trailer for “The Informant” came out today as well with a fat Matt Damon and Scott Bakula. “In 1992, Whitacre confessed to an FBI agent (played by Bakula) that he and other company execs had fixed the price of lysine, a grain-based food additive. Soderbergh is evidently casting the story as a sharp, perhaps even mean corporate comedy in which Whitacre is bipolar, bumbling and delusional. Whitacre worked with the FBI for almost three years, was responsible for hundreds of hours of audio and video surveillance, and helped lock down what was at the time the largest price-fixing case in history. But he also stole $9m from ADM, and went to jail for a longer term than any of the execs he helped convict. (/Film)”

This film also comes out October 9th, but you can check out the trailer below.
