DGA Nominations

The Directors Guild of America announced its 2012 nominees for best director and there are some insane omissions. I understand Affleck, Spielberg and Bigelow. I'm fine and content with that, but Lee and Hooper seem to be safe bets. Come on. They could have picked David O. Russell, obviously, Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson or Michael Haneke. Damn, even Quentin Tarantino. It is kind of a joke, but it is what it is. Just seem to avoid those great auteurs. Here is a list of the nominees.

  • Ben Affleck (Argo)
  • Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty)
  • Tom Hooper (Les Miserables)
  • Ang Lee (Life of Pi)
  • Steven Spielberg (Lincoln)
