Nods for DGA Award Announced

by Mike Jones

The Directors Guild of America has announced the nominees for Outstanding
Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 1997. The awards will be
announced at the 50th annual DGA Awards Dinner on March 7th in New York and
L.A. Included is first time nominee Gus Van Sant along side Steven
Spielberg, who has been nominated seven times previously. The award is
noted as a “near perfect” foreshadowing of the Academy’s Best Director
award — only four times since 1949 has the DGA winner not won the Academy

The nominations are: James L. Brooks for “As Good As It Gets“; James
Cameron for “Titanic“; Curtis Hanson for “L.A. Confidential“; Steven
Spielberg for “Amistad“; Gus Van Sant for “Good Will Hunting“.
