After announcements came from the WGA, PGA and SAG, the Directors Guild of America (DGA) decided to join in on the fun and shovel out their choices for feature film today. Is anyone else as excited as I am? Anyone? Anyone? Though Steven Spielberg was snubbed by the other threeguilds, the DGA tossed him a bone. That's right, he's on the list. You can rest safely now. The other picks include George Clooney for Good Night, and Good Luck, Paul Haggis for Crash, Bennett Miller for Capote and Ang Lee for Brokeback Mountain.

Munich marks Spielberg's tenth nomination (of which he's won three) and Lee has won once. This is the first nomination for the other three directors. An interesting statistic shows that the winner of the DGA's award for outstanding directorial achievement has been the same as Oscar's choice the past 51 out of 57 times. Last year, Clint Eastwood (who gets a lifetime achievement award this year) won both for Million Dollar Baby. This leads me to believe that everyone in the DGA is psychic, and I think that's pretty cool. The winner will be announced on January 28th at the 58th annual DGA awards dinner.
