DGA Reactions – O. Russell in Tears

The DGA nod meant much to David O. Russell. His film is about second chances, and the director could not help but feel as though this is some sort of second chance for him:

‚ÄúWhen Taylor Hackford called me this morning I have to admit I started to cry . I am so humbled because it is such a talented field this year, I had prepared myself to not be part of it. To be recognized by my peers, moves me beyond words with gratitude and humility. Like boxing, our business doesn’t always give second chances. I’m eternally grateful to Mark Wahlberg for bringing me into this very special project about truly inspiring people like Micky Ward, Dick Eklund, and the families of Lowell; as I am grateful to producers David Hoberman, Ryan Kavanaugh, Todd Lieberman, the phenomenal cast, Paramount, Relativity, and the members of the DGA.‚Äù

And Christopher Nolan was equally surprised and grateful:

“I‚Äôm thrilled that the DGA membership has chosen to nominate me and my DGA
team (Jan Foster, Nilo Otero, Brandon Lambdin, Greg Pawlik, Lauren
Pasternack) for our work on ‘Inception.’ The recognition of our peers is
extremely gratifying – this is an incredible honor.”
