Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig Get Directors Guild Nominations

The skill with which Lady Bird and Get Out were crafted is stunning, and the lines Gerwig and Peele had to toe in order to get those films to work justright were super thin. But I'm happy to be proven wrong, as these two young filmmakers not only made spectacular debuts this year (Gerwig technically directed one prior feature, but it was a co-directing credit), but also helmed two of the year's best films.

She is competing against other major names in this category, including Guillermo del Toro ("The Shape of Water"), Jordan Peele ("Get Out"), Martin McDonagh ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri") and Christopher Nolan ("Dunkirk").

With almost 17,000 members, including television and commercial directors, the guild often selects a more populist lineup when compared with the selections of the almost 400 members of the directors' branch of the film academy. The movie nominations for the DGA Awards are set to be released on Thursday (10Jan18). Alejandro G. Innaritu became the first director to nab both DGAs and Oscars in consecutive years, for "Birdman" in 2015 and "The Revenant" in 2016.

Since 1948, all but seven of the eventual winners of the accolade have gone on to repeat their success at the Oscars, with Damien Chazelle claiming the Best Director Academy Award previous year (17) after taking home the DGA gong.

The 2018 DGA Awards will be hosted by filmmaker Judd Apatow in Beverly Hills, California on 3 February (18).

In the documentary category, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick were nominated for "The Vietnam War", along with Errol Morris for "Wormwood", Steve James for "Abacus: Small Enough to Jail", Matthew Heineman for "City of Ghosts" and Bryan Fogel for "Icarus".
