The Directors Guild of America recently announced the winners of their annual awards, held in Los Angeles. It comes as no shock whatsoever that Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuaron was bestowed with the award for feature film direction, making him a sure thing for the Academy Award.
The Directors Guild is represented largely by those who also vote in the Academy and so, like the other major Hollywood guilds, the results largely reflect the Academy Awards results. For months Cuaron has been the frontrunner for Best Director, so this offers nothing more than confirmation.
Cuaron took several years to bring Gravity to the screen, inventing technology along the way and commanding an exceptional performance from Sandra Bullock, one that clearly deserves the Oscar than The Blind Side but is this year overshadowed by Cate Blanchett.
Gravity will likely win both Visual Effects and Best Director, following in the footsteps of last year’s Life of Pi. Both films have stood out for their technical achievements and are starting to reverse the age old Oscar trend of Best Picture and Director going hand in hand.
