The Directors Have Spoken

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) announced their nominations for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film today, and they are the following:

Kathryn Bigelow for "The Hurt Locker"
James Cameron for "Avatar"
Lee Daniels for "Precious"
Jason Reitman for "Up in the Air"
Quentin Tarantino for "Inglourious Basterds"

So, no real surprises, and I'm predicting that the five nominations for Best Director from the Academy will mirror these selections exactly, that is unless Clint Eastwood sneaks in there instead of Lee Daniels, but that's unlikely.

Also as some breaking news, apparently Lee Daniels is the first black man to ever be nominated by the DGA, so kudos to him for that outstanding achievement.
