Directors Guild Nominations Announced (2007/8)

The Directors Guild of America has announced its list of nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures for 2007. The DGA awards are quite closely scrutinised as their selection very often end up in the running for Best Picture at the Oscars (since only getting three right in 2001, they’ve chosen at least four the same as the Academy each year). Their choices are:

Paul Thomas Anderson – There Will Be Blood

Joel and Ethan Coen – No Country For Old Men

Tony Gilroy – Michael Clayton

Sean Penn – Into The Wild

Julian Schnabel – The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

I think Atonement should have been up there.
