a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Budapest TildaBradley 1The DGA, the Director’s Guild of America, just announced its’ VERY important and telling slate of five nominees. They are a large,sprawling organization. As opposed to the Academy’s Director’s Branch which only has less than 400 members. Ava DuVernay, the African-American director of “Selma” was snubbed as once again the DGA did not get sent any screeners in time to see it. Shame Paramount, shame! Your biggest Waterloo continues…

Here’s the nominess-

Richard Linklater “Boyhood”

Clint Eastwood “American Sniper”

Alejandro Inarritu “Birdman”

Wes Anderson “The Grand Budapest HoteL’

and the surprise of surprises, the unknown Norwegian director Morten Tyldum for “Imitation Game”!!!

Next up ~ The OSCAR NOMINATIONS themselves will be up bright and early on Thursday morning!Boyhood 2

  1. I’m certainly intrigued by the DGA selections, but still feel like the nominations on Thursday won’t completely reflect the DGA nods. I think there is still a strong chance for DuVernay and Fincher to receive Best Director noms, but we’ll have to wait to find out.
