The Directors Guild of America revealed nominations in a hotly anticipated announcement. The DGA usually comes pretty close to predicting what the Academy Awards will do. It was a very good day for Bradley Cooper, that’s for sure. DGA cited Cooper twice, once in Outstanding Director and once for Outstanding First Time Director, both for A Star Is Born.

Joining him in the big category is Alfonso Cuaron for Roma, Peter Farrelly for Green Book, Spike Lee for BlacKkKlansman, and Adam McKay for Vice. Could these be the Oscar five? Give or take a snubbed director like Ryan Coogler, it sure looks like that, according to Hollywood Reporter. It’ll be a hot race, both here and with the Academy, as Cooper and Cuaron likely battle it out.

 

The other prize is almost certainly Cooper’s, but his competition is Bo Burnham for Eighth Grade, Carlos Lopez Estrada for Blindspotting, Matthew Heineman for A Private War, and Boots Riley for Sorry To Bother You.
