Complete List of 2012 DGA Awards Winners!
The Screen Actors Guild wasn’t the only group dishing out awards Sunday night. The Director’s Guild of America was also patting themselves on the back.
‘The Artist‘ director Michel Hazanavicius received top honours from the Guild.
What does this mean for your potential Oscar Picks!? Well, let us tell you!
Winning the Directors Guild of America Award makes Hazanavicius your best bet to take home the gold in your Office Oscar Pool!!
Almost without fail, the winner of the DGA award has won the Academy Award. Since they started handing out DGA awards back in 1948, there have only been six instances in which the DGA winner left the Oscars empty-handed. The most recent being in 2002. ONLY SIX!
Also, this means you should probably pick “The Artist” for the win too. Here’s some more interesting stats for you! There is only 13 times in which the winner’s film didn’t stroll off with a Best Picture statuette at the Oscars. The most recent of these was in 2005.
