Bigelow wins DGA
In a strange, "Dewey Beats Truman" moment, the El Paso Times jumped the gun and published a story trumpeting James Cameron as the winner, saying:
James Cameron beat out ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow on Saturday night at the Directors Guild of America Award for feature-film directing, a prize that has traditionally led to a win on Oscar night.
Cameron won for his blockbuster "Avatar," while Bigelow was nominated for her critically acclaimed Iraq war drama "The Hurt Locker." Cameron won the Golden Globe earlier for best director, and said during his acceptance speech that he expected Bigelow to win the prize.
Not that one expects top-notch reporting from the El Paso Times, but still it's strange.
