After announcing its nominations in the television and documentary categories earlier this week, the Directors Guild of America has now revealed its slate of nominees for its annual film awards -- and with it, prognosticators may have a clearer shape of the Oscar race.

Recent Golden Globe winners "Roma" (Best Director Alfonso Cuaron) and "Green Book" (Best Comedy Film, helmed by Peter Farrelly) were both represented in the DGA's lineup, as were "A Star Is Born" (Bradley Cooper), "BlacKkKlansman" (Spike Lee), and "Vice" (Adam McKay). Cooper also received a second DGA nomination in the first-time director category, as did newly-minted Writers Guild Awards nominee Bo Burnham ("Eighth Grade").

Amazingly enough, this is Lee's first ever DGA nomination. He seems all but a shoo-in to repeat for an Oscar nomination, too.

Speaking of the Oscars, the DGA picks typically have lots of overlap with the eventual Academy shortlists of both Best Director and Best Picture. Last year's DGA champ, "The Shape of Water," went on to claim both of those Oscar statuettes.

The full list of nominees is below. The DGA Awards will be handed out on February 2.
