Directors Guild of America Announces 2013 Nominees

After announcing their five nominees for Best Film Director of 2013, the Directors Guild of America continued on January 9 by further announcing their nominees for directing achievements in television.

It's okay, not everybody got the point of the film. It really wasn't his greatest, though.

Wolf was pretty uninteresting. I mean there was a point to the film, but it was diluted by the constant sex, cocaine, and scattershot plotting.

Hey, Scorsese needs more oscars than he has. Let's just let him have it.

Some may say "that's not the point of awards", but I see what you mean. Leo wasn't the best actor this year, but he hasn't ever won when he should have, and has even been snubbed when he should have won (Django Unchained, anyone?)

Give him the award. Give him all the awards.

I see what you mean, but, even then, Scorsese has been overdue for a long time now and he's only won once. The oscars should make it up to people like him and Tarantino and Fincher who barely win if they ever do.

Leo's acting was mediocre in comparison to his older stuff- at least before Titanic!

Putting it IN Cuaron? Sounds like you might just be secretly pulling for Wolf on Wallstreet.

I have yet to see Wolf. Although it's first trailer was pretty good, the terrible audience reviews have me worried.

It chides the audience for their envy of wealth. Some people find this uncomfortable.

But, BB, Scorsese and DiCaprio are wealthy for CREATING SOMETHING. The film makes fun of the dream of getting rich quick. Profound difference.

Without a doubt in mind Steve mcQueen for 12 Years a Slave

12 Years is so similar in style to any other historical drama, it doesn't seem like makes a mark as a director, unlike Gravity, which has Cuaron written all over it.

Both films make marks in directing. Gravity is a little more obvious but they are very different and serve their stories equally well.

Good to see all the Oscar bait movies getting nominated. Boredwood is more predictable than a Waratah Super 15 season.

Nice. Siked that Martin's nominated. Rootin for Alfonso too. He's just a dope filmmaker but they're all pretty much good picks.

Go Alfonso Cuaron! He deserves it the most

Jan 7 - 03:34 PM

Agreed. Though, as much as I loved Breaking Bad, I thought Rian Wilson should be winning this award over Bryan Cranston for the episode "Ozymandias". Nevertheless, Cuaron for Movie, Gilligan for Drama TV, and a Modern Family win for Comedy TV (but only because none of the shows nominated for comedy deserve to be).

I have not seen any of these films, but out of all the Trailers. Regardless of the "Help Help, I'm a woman! I'm in hysterics at the work place and need help!" theme of the Gravity Trailer. It is a pretty outstanding Trailer. Cuaron for the Win.

Until you see the film, and notice the fact that Clooney isn't the hero, just STFU already.

I'm just saying. When (if?) you see the film, you'll see how wrong this characterization is.

Sandra is not a trained astronaut in the film. She's a specialist brought on the mission for a specific task, and has only had 6 mos of training. I imagine that anyone, male or female, would go into hysterics in a similar situation. And, it's temporary. She steps up eventually and displays a lot of courage and perseverance.

How can you call it the "work place?" Yes, it's her work place but its so vastly different from other work places that it's irrelevant to call it that as a cliche.
