With the announcement of the Directors Guild of America's selections for Best Director on Tuesday and this morning's announcement of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' nominees in all categories, the awards season once again roars to life.
I'm a DGA member, so this is the favorite time of year for my professional life - and my life as a film fan. (The DGA also announced nominees for television and commercial direction.)
I've seen at least a couple of dozen of the films that have been nominated in all categories, and all of the films the DGA and AMPAS have selected for director, so for once I'll have a lot to say on this blog.
Check back later today for more of the Directors Guild and Oscar picks.
