The 2014 Directors Guild Awards were handed out earlier this evening, and Alfonso Cuaron took the top prize for Gravity, launching him (and the film) into frontrunner status heading into the Oscars.  The DGA winner is a very solid predictor of the eventual Oscar winner for the Best Director category, as the two have only failed to match up seven times in the past 65 years.  Moreover, the DGA winner’s film has won the Best Picture Oscar on all but 13 occasions.  We’ve known it’s going to be a very tight race since the PGA split its top award between Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, but this DGA win for Gravity puts it ever so slightly ahead.

Elsewhere at the DGA Awards, Steven Soderbergh took home the Miniseries/TV Movie prize for Behind the Candelabra and Vince Gilligan won TV Drama for the series finale of Breaking Bad, beating out the likes of David Fincher and Bryan Cranston.  Hit the jump to read the full list of winners.
