The DGA breakfast today where Alfonso Cuaron, the expected winner tonight, was a no show — he was celebrating his son’s birthday in Italy. He will be back for the ceremony this evening.  All pundits are expecting Cuaron to win tonight (except me – I am the Lone Survivor predicting McQueen, being that I think 12 Years is winning Best Picture.

This weekend, the Directors Guild adds their voice to the mix. We’ve covered this in the DGA preview, but someone just sent me an email from Gold Derby with the following question: Hey guys, huge fan of Goldderby.

The DGA five will represent the strongest Best Picture contenders of the year. Even more than Oscar’s own branch, the DGA is the best at predicting Best Picture.

What was that…

Before we write our DGA preview (some time this evening) – here is a quickie contest to see how well you can predict the Directors Guild nominations.  They will likely be different from the Oscar nominations, since the DGA announce on January 6 and Oscar ballots have to be turned in by January 7.  Not really enough time to rally around a consensus.
