Well it looks like Nolan made the cut. This means he’s a hop, skip and a jump away from the Oscars. It seems like if the Dark Knight is nominated, it wins, but when it’s not nominated, it’s a Boyle world. The DGA definitely has a list of impressive Directors to choose from. Personally (put down your pitchforks) I still don’t think The Dark Knight should be on the list, it’s a great film, but I’m still biased. Heath Ledger should definitely have his performance counted, but I’m still unconvinced about the rest.

Check out the list of nominees for the DGA Award below…

  • David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)
  • Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight)
  • Ron Howard (Frost/Nixon)
  • Gus Van Sant (Milk)
  • Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire)

Anyone else you would have liked to see on this list? If not, who do you think deserves to win?
