The Directors Guild of America were handed out Saturday night and the number surprises was... well, none. Birdman was expected to win and it did, while CitizenFour is rapidly becoming the Oscar-favorite.

The categories and nominees are...

Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film

Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary

Notes and Reactions...

  • Birdman won over the second-favorite film, Boyhood. While I felt Birdman was the favorite, not everyone agreed. Regardless, had either film won, I doubt many would have really called it a shock.
  • CitizenFour won in the documentary category, which bolsters my earlier Oscar prediction.
