Comedian-writer Jordan Peele is up for two awards including Best Director for his directorial debut, Get Out. The Guild announced its feature film nominees Thursday, including Gerwig for the coming-of age film "Lady Bird" and Peele for his horror sensation "Get Out", which also earned him a first-time director nod.
Only one woman - Kathryn Bigelow - has ever won a best director Oscar despite efforts by women to make inroads into behind the camera positions in Hollywood in recent years.
The comedy field includes two nominations for "Master of None" (Aziz Ansari and Melina Matsoukas), Mike Judge for "Silicon Valley", "Veep's" Beth McCarthy-Miller and Golden Globe victor "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" (Amy Sherman-Palladino). Several Latino men and Taiwan's Ang Lee have won the award. And Nolan is beloved by the DGA and deservedly gets recognition for his stunning achievement on Dunkirk here.
The actress-turned-moviemaker's critically-acclaimed family drama, Lady Bird, has landed her on the shortlist for the top honour at the 2018 ceremony, alongside fellow awards season favourites Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, and Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. More than any other Hollywood union, the Directors Guild's top award is heavily predictive of Oscar gold, with almost 80 percent of all D.G.A. best director winners' pictures going on to land the academy's top prize.
The two other Golden Globe nominees for Best Director - Steven Spielberg for The Post and Ridley Scott for All the Money in the World - are absent from the DGA's list.
Despite not being nominated for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Film Director award, Gerwig has had a fantastic award season.
The winners will be announced on February 3 at the 70th Annual DGA Awards.
