Directors Guild Nominations

The DGA announced their five honorees today, and offered a few surprises along with a few usual suspects.

The nominees are:
  • Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris
  • David Fincher, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  • Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
  • Alexander Payne, The Descendants
  • Martin Scorsese, Hugo
MIA are Steven Spielberg for War Horse and Terrence Malick for The Tree of Life. I would imagine one of those will replace Fincher at the Oscars, and Allen's Oscar nod isn't a lock just yet either, but the race is beginning to shape up now.
