Directors Guild of America Goes All-Digital for 2013 Voting, Sets Awards Schedule

The Directors Guild of America has set its schedule for the 65th Annual DGA Awards and dinner, which will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2013 in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland. For the first time, DGA members will vote online only–no paper ballots (for the last few years they had a choice). The DGA Award for feature film historically is a strong bellwether for the eventual winner of the Oscar: the two have matched up 58 out of 64 times since 1949. 

DGA members can vote online between December 4, 2012 – January 9, 2013 for Feature Film Nomination; between December 17, 2012 – January 9, 2013 for Television Nominations for Comedy Series, Dramatic Series, Movies for Television and Mini-Series, and Musical Variety; and between January 10 – February 1, 2013 for Feature Film Final Ballot.

The DGA’s schedule and calendar is posted below.
