2009 Director’s Guild Awards - Slumdog Wins

The little indie film that nearly went straight to dvd won yet another best of the year award on Feb. 1 - thanks to Fox Searchlight, the popular and uplifting film actually got distributed worldwide. [Film] Director: Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire Documentary: Ari Folman for Waltz With Bashir Honorary Lifetime Membership: film critic Roger Ebert [TV] TV Drama Series: Dan Attias for The Wire TV Film: Jay Roach for Recount (dir. of Austin Powers and Meet the Parents) TV Comedy or Musical Series: Paul Feig for The Office Reality Programming: Tony Kroll for America’s Next Top Model Children’s: Amy Schatz for The Poetry Show Normally the winner of the DGA award for director wins the Oscar – it only differed six times, ironically each time the DGA really had the better one, I thought
