From IMDB: Oscar hopes continued to shine bright for Golden Globe winners Chicago and The Hours as the directors for both those films – Rob Marshall and Stephen Daldry, respectively – were nominated today for this year’s Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Feature Film; it was the first DGA nomination for both directors. Previous DGA nominees Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), Roman Polanski (The Pianist) and Martin Scorsese (Gangs of New York) – none of whom have ever won.
