Tom Hooper Named Best Director By Directors Guild of America « the diary of a film awards fanatic ›

oldfilmsflicker:

this is huge you guys.

I never thought I’d be in a position where I was rooting for The Social Network, but damn, this is some bullshit. The King’s Speech is some fine, middlebrow entertainment but that shit ain’t the best directed movie of the year.

And apart from the frightening prospect of a King’s Speech sweep from a quality standpoint, it also makes for a potentially boring awards ceremony. I want some contests, not a no-brainer sweep of all the major awards. So, hopefully this is not a sure fire indicator of Oscar night. Fingers crossed.
