Alejandro G. Inarritu, Tom McCarthy, Adam McKay, George Miller, And Ridley Scott Score 2016 DGA Nominations

The mysterious fog obscuring this Thursday’s Academy Awards nominations is beginning to clear. The Producers Guild Awards revealed its Motion Picture picks last week, and now comes the nominations from the Directors Guild Awards. Here’s the bottom line: it’s not looking great for “Carol” and “The Hateful Eight.”

Both movies missed with the PGAs and have missed out with the DGAs as well, with George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Alejandro G. Iñárritu (“The Revenant” ), Adam McKay (“The Big Short”) and Ridley Scott (“The Martian”) scoring honors. In addition to Quentin Tarantino and Todd Haynes missing out, so too did Steven Spielberg for “Bridge Of Spies.”

Here are the nominees again, and share your thoughts in the comments section. The DGAs will be handed out on February 6th.
