Directors Guild

The nominees are...
EASTWOOD -Million Dollar Baby
FORSTER -Finding Neverland
PAYNE -Sideways
SCORSESE -The Aviator

Haven't you heard? In an uncharacteristic fit of restraint Hollywood only produced five movies this year so these are, naturally and by default, your five nominees.

Do you think Gondry has no shot? Probably not, I guess. Who would be the other candidates?


I don't think Gondry has a shot, sad as it is. Because I guess it's easier to direct a mediocre awkward costumed biopic and a mediocre overlong musical biopic than it is to direct a structurally complex hilarious and poignant movie about love lost and the power of memory to define us.

or something...

The only potential spoilers I think are in order of likelihood:
Zhang Yimou riding that double whammy buzz.
Michael Mann because Collateral's campaign was awesome.
extreme longshots:
Terry George Hotel Rwanda
Mike Nichols Closer
and the fearsome polarizing twosome:
Gibson & Moore for their massive hits.
