Oscars 2015: DGA Awards
They gave out the DGA Awards earlier tonight. Or, I guess yesterday, since it’s like 3am now.
Alejandro G. Inarritu won for The Revenant.
So Best Director is pretty much a wrap. The DGA is the most accurate precursor of all of them.
The back-t0-back Best Director feat has only happened once before: Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1949 and 1950, for A Letter to Three Wives and All About Eve. Mankiewicz also won Best Screenplay for both of those efforts on top of that. The Revenant wasn’t nominated for Screenplay this year, otherwise that also would have been in play.
BAFTA announces in a week. They’re the only ones that could potentially pull for an alternate winner. Though at this point, who could that even be?
