Directors Guild of America (DGA) Film Nominations

Obviously, like everyone, I underestimated Lion's awards potential, as Garth Davis sneaks into this race. However, it is pure Academy bait, and we should not discount older voters who eat up stories like Lion. Will he cross over to the Academy? Of course, but the directors branch of the Academy often has its own ideas, so for now that fifth slot still seems a bit of a toss up between Davis, Scorsese, Washington, MacKenzie, Melfi, and Gibson

Best Director
Damien Chazelle "La La Land"
Garth Davis "Lion"
Barry Jenkins "Moonlight"
Kenneth Lonergan "Manchester By the Sea"
