Alfonso-Cuaron-Triumphs-At-The-Directors-Guild-Awards

Though not the scene of as much glitz and glamour as some of other awards shows, the Directors Guild Awards has nevertheless been a steady pointer to which of the talented film overseers is likely to score the directing gong when Oscar night rolls around. Alfonso Cuarón's Academy Awards hopes therefore got boost on Saturday night, when he took home the film award for his efforts on Gravity.

While The Square’s Jehanne Noujaim notched a win for documentary, the TV movie and drama categories provided largely predictable triumphs for both Steven Soderbergh with Behind The Candelabra and Breaking Bad. On the Breaking Bad front, we do have to admit some surprise that the superlative Ozymandias wasn’t even nominated, given the great job Rian Johnson did on it, but we’re pleased to see Vince Gilligan getting some appreciation for wrapping everything up in Felina.
