Another accolade for Million Dollar Baby came Saturday, as The Directors Guild of America named Clint Eastwood Director of the Year. This is the second time Eastwood has won the DGA honor;12 years ago, he went on to win several Oscars for the DGA-honored Unforgiven. The honor adds more fuel to the Oscar race fire: it looks like Eastwood's film is starting to edge ever so slightly ahead of Martin Scorsese's The Aviator. According to Variety, Eastwood is "pleased as punch" over the victory.
