Game of Thrones a triple nominee for Directors Guild of America Awards

DGA Reveals Award Nominees 2

All five of the DGA nominees also won nods last week from the Producers Guild of America (PGA), which also has a track record of honouring the movie that goes on to win best picture at the Academy Awards, the industry's top prize. Natalie Portman announced the nominees for best director at the Golden Globes, calling out the lack of female nominees during the live telecast.

The others: Lina Wertmüller ("Seven Beauties"), Randa Haines ("Children of a Lesser God"), Barbra Streisand ("The Prince of Tides"), Jane Campion ("The Piano"), Sofia Coppola ("Lost in Translation"), Valerie Faris (with Jonathan Dayton, "Little Miss Sunshine") and Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker", "Zero Dark Thirty").

The last director that was nominated for the DGA's coveted Best Director award was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri's, Martin McDonagh.

While female-centric stories were certainly in the spotlight Sunday night, it was notable that there were no female filmmakers nominated for best director. "Get Out" helmer Jordan Peele joins Lee Daniels ("Precious"), Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave") and Barry Jenkins ("Moonlight") as only the fourth black director to be recognized.

Peele also double-dipped in the DGA's first-time filmmaker category, nominated alongside Geremy Jasper ("Patti Cake$"), William Oldroyd ("Lady Macbeth"), Taylor Sheridan ("Wind River") and Aaron Sorkin ("Molly's Game"). Not only does that bump the likes of Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve, but it gives Gerwig her first non-critics group directing nomination. Last year, the academy's directors branch voters subbed in Mel Gibson ("Hacksaw Ridge") over DGA nominee Garth Davis ("Lion").

The DGA Awards also has a unique category recognizing up-and-coming directors, who made their directorial debuts during the award season.
