    I don’t think there will be much of a surprise. Affleck, Spielberg, Bigelow, Lee, Russell will probably be chosen. Alt. Hooper, Haneke, Tarantino or Anderson for “The Master” could push Russell or Lee off the list but I wouldn’t bet on it.

  15. January 7, 2013

    Zero Dark Thirty and The Master both win big in Vancouver.

    NGNG: Joss Whedon (The Avengers)

  49. Ben
    January 8, 2013

    In no particular order (reality TV IDOL/X Factor/The Voice/Talent style) my Predictions for DGA are as followed:

    Spielberg
    Bigelow
    Affleck
    Lee
    O. Russell

    MY NGNG pick is… shock horror: Tarantino

  50. akumax
    January 8, 2013

    Prediction: Lee Bigelow Spielberg Affleck and… Hooper

    NGNG: Wes Anderson

  51. Someone
    January 8, 2013

    Everything is hot and nice but WHEN they are announcing?
    My predictions: Russell, Bigelow, Spielberg, Affleck, Tarantino.
    NGNG: NO Affleck

  52. Eric P.
    January 8, 2013

    N.G.N.G.
    Wes Anderson for “Moonrise Kingdom”

    Predictions:
    Kathryn Bigelow “Zero Dark Thirty”
    Ben Affleck “Argo”
    Steven Spielberg “Lincoln”
    Ang Lee “Life of Pi”
    David O. Russel “Silver Linings Playbook”

    Michael Haneke for “Amour” or Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained” could get that last spot. I seriously thing Hooper is out.

  53. January 8, 2013

    NGNG – Gonna agree with Sasha. Benh Zeitlin. Imagine!

  54. January 8, 2013

    NGNG – Wes Anderson, Moonrise Kingdom

  55. January 8, 2013
  56. Jim
    January 8, 2013

    NGNG – Michael Haneke

    By the way, does anyone know at what time they’re annoucing?

  57. Zetto M.
    January 8, 2013

    Ngng: Christopher Nolan for TDKR!!! (not gonna happen although that’d be sweet)
    Predictions: (terrific year, btw)
    Spielberg (Lincoln)
    Bigelow (ZD30)
    Lee (Life of Pi)
    O’Russel (Silver Linings Playbook. Should get it because it had superior direction to his nominated work for The fighter IMO)
    annd Affleck (Argo)
    However I wouldn’t be too shocked if Tarantino, P.T.A., or Hooper received deserving recognition. And I wouldn’t mind Zeitlin, Chbosky, or Anderson’s names were announced for their efforts as well. Yayay and hooraay for such a great time ATM 2012! :D

  58. Jim
    January 8, 2013

    The Impossible just got 14 Goya nominations, including Best Actress, Supporting Actor for McGregor and Best Newcomer for Tom Holland.

  60. Bryce Forestieri
    January 8, 2013

  61. Gage Creed
    January 8, 2013

    Tarantino and Hooper as “No Guts, No Glory”??

  62. Gage Creed
    January 8, 2013

    My NGNG will also be Sam Mendes for Skyfall.

  63. matt85
    January 8, 2013

    Does anybody know in what exact time will they announce it?
    NGNG: PTA, The Master

  64. Christophe
    January 8, 2013

    The Impossible is a “spanish” production that grossed more than $50mil in Spain alone: #1 movie of the year (2x Twilight), #2 all-time BO behind Avatar.
    So that might explain why it’s doing so well at the Goyas.

  65. danemychal
    January 8, 2013

    NGNG pick is Robert Zemeckis

  66. Jose Ramon
    January 8, 2013

    Steven Spielberg “Lincoln”
    Ang Lee “Life of Pi”

  67. Christina
    January 8, 2013

    NGNG
    Sam Mendes for Skyfall.
    Christopher Nolan for The Dark Knight Rises (but I would love if he is nominated)

  68. danemychal
    January 8, 2013

    PaulH – You can stop hating on Lee. The DGA could have 10 noms and Nolan likely will still not make it. Real awards buzz for TDKR died and died hard a long time ago.

  69. Greg Y
    January 8, 2013

    NGNG: Haneke or Anderson

  70. Nic V
    January 8, 2013
