Why Ben Affleck's DGA Win Matters Even Though He's Not Oscar-Nominated (Analysis)

The 65th annual Directors Guild of America Awards ceremony is underway in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.

This year’s nominees for film are Ben Affleck, nominated for Argo; Kathryn Bigelow, Zero Dark Thirty; Tom Hooper, Les Miserables; Ang Lee, Life of Pi; and Steven Spielberg, Lincoln. The DGA Award is considered a strong predictor of which filmmaker will take home the best director Oscar. There have been just six instances since the award’s 1948 inception in which the DGA winner did not win the Oscar.

On the television front, Showtime's Homeland came into the awards with two drama series directing nominations. The other nominated shows are AMC's Mad Men and Breaking Bad and HBO's The Newsroom.
