DGA Awards Winners List (Updating Live)

The 72nd annual DGA Awards on Saturday night at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in downtown Los Angeles is handing out 12 competitive awards for the year’s most outstanding directing achievements in film, documentary, TV and commercials. Judd Apatow is returning to host the ceremony.

The Directors Guild awards are an important bellwether in the Oscar race — only seven times since the marquee Theatrical Feature Film award’s inception in 1949 has the winner differed from the eventual Oscar Directing winner. Last year was no exception: Alfonso Cuarón won for Roma and repeated the feat on Oscar night (it lost Best Picture though to Green Book). Cuarón is back tonight as a presenter.

This year’s big director race features nominees Bong Joon-Ho (Parasite), Sam Mendes (1917), Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Martin Scorsese (The Irishman) and Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), the latter of whom is nommed here but not in the Oscar race (Todd Phillips for Joker took that spot).
