The DGA Honors Jane Campion


Last night, the Directors Guild of America awarded their top prize to Jane Campion and The Power of the Dog.  This is definitely good news for the film, as far as the Oscars are concerned.  With West Side Story now on HBO and so many people rediscovering how important a director Steven Spielberg really is, it seemed as if the momentum may have been shifting.  But, thanks to the DGA and the recent controversy over Sam Elliott’s comments about the film, The Power of the Dog is once again the front runner.

(To be honest, as far as Spielberg is concerned, it wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of Academy voters are currently of the “In just a few month, he’s going to get another chance with The Fabelmans” mindset.)

Here are the film winners from the DGA:

Paul Thomas Anderson – Licorice Pizza

Jane Campion – The Power of the Dog
Steven Spielberg – West Side Story
Denis Villeneuve – Dune

Raoul Peck – Exterminate All The Brutes

  1. This is going to be quite an Oscar ceremony: it seems to be coming down to the acclaimed “Power Of The Dog” versus the feel-good underdog “Coda.” I’m surebyou will be giving us your final predictions soon and I will share mine then as well…we are getting close to the big night and it seems that Hollywood will be coming out in full force and full regalia to celebrate!
