The Directors Guild of America has announced its nominees for best director of 2009. They are:
Kathryn Bigelow – The Hurt Locker
James Cameron – Avatar
Lee Daniels – Precious
Jason Reitman – Up in the Air
Quentin Tarantino – Inglorious Basterds
These nominations are a strong indication of who may be nominated for the Oscar. This also might be the most diverse group of nominees in DGA history. It is refreshing that Lee Daniels is nominated after being left off the Golden Globes ballot.

I take it you liked Precious. To be honest I only feel like only Cameron and Bigelow should be here. Oh well.
I didn’t necessarily love Precious but its a decent film. I LOVE Lee Daniels however and I prefer that Daniels is nominated over Clint Eastwood.
Oh please. By all means over Eastwood. Invictus was borderline bad for me. And Daniels is the third for me, even though I don’t think he should be there, I also don’t think Tarantino and definitely NOT Reiteman.
Now I’m interested. Why not Tarantino and Reitman?
