The Directors Guild of America has unveiled its list of 2014 nominees, and it’s stacked with heavy hitters.  The nominees for the 2014 DGA Award are Alfonso Cuaron for Gravity, Paul Greengrass for Captain Phillips, Steve McQueen for 12 Years a Slave, David O. Russell for American Hustle, and Martin Scorsese for The Wolf of Wall Street.  This is pretty much what we expected, with Spike Jonze (Her) and Alexander Payne (Nebraska) acting as alternates, but we now have a complete shutout from the four major guilds (DGA, PGA, SAG, and WGA) for Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis.

The DGA nominations don’t typically match up 5-for-5 with the Oscar Best Director nominations, as there’s normally one slot that is switched up when the Oscar nods come around.  Except for last year, when they went 2-for-5 and presumed frontrunners Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck failed to land Oscar nods after nabbing DGA nominations.  To read my full analysis of the nominations, click here.  The 2014 DGA Awards will be held January 25th.
