Will Win - Michel Hazanavicius "The Artist"
Should Win/Could Win - Martin Scorsese "Hugo"
Commentary - The reason that Hugo has so many nominations and is so beloved is solely because of the passion and vision of Martin Scorsese. And while he definitely could take the award, if they won't give it to him for Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, and The Aviator, then they will not be giving it to him for Hugo. So it goes to the DGA winner who has swept the awards this season, newcome Michel Hazanavicius. I just hope he follows up The Artist with more strong films, so that this award is not wasted on a one-hit wonder (I know he had some hits in France, but you get my point).
