Director’s Council nominations focus on veterans like Jane Campion and Steven Spielberg

The Directors Guild of America announced the feature film nominations on Thursday, recognizing Paul Thomas Anderson (“Licorice Pizza”), Kenneth Branagh (“Belfast”), Jane Campion (“The Power of the Dog”), Steven Spielberg (“West Side Story”) and Denis Villeneuve (“The Sand Dunes”). Branagh was the category’s only first-time nominee; others have been nominated by the association before, and Spielberg holds the record for most DGA wins with three.

All five nominated directors also saw their films recognized early Thursday by Manufacturers Association of America, which shows that they include the superiors of this season’s best picture nominees. The Director Guild nominations also tend to fit 4/5 when it comes to the Oscars’ Best Director category. Last year, only DGA’s Aaron Sorkin selected (“Chicago 7’s Challenge”) was eliminated; he was replaced in Thomas Vinterberg’s Oscar nomination (“Another Round”). Last year, the Academy Award went to Todd Phillips (“Joker”) instead of Taika Waititi (“Jojo Rabbit”).

Campion’s participation marks the first time in DGA history that a woman has been nominated in bordering years: Last season, both Emerald Fennell (“Prospective Young Woman”) and eventual winner Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”) performed. And in the DGA category that recognizes filmmakers for the first time, four of the six nominees are women this year.
