Actually, I am shocked to see Tom Hooper made the cut. I was expecting Michael Haneke's name on the list.

Tom Hooper's direction was the weakest link in Les Mis.

DGA likes to nominate its own, r2. They're not going to acknowledge some foreign language dude.

No David O Russell, big shock.

Tom Hooper? What a joke. I agree with the others, but would have replaced Hooper with Tarantino or Coscarelli.

WTF Not Coscarelli, I meant David O. Russell, but they seem to hate him.

Tom Hooper winning the best director oscar was the biggest WTF moment. I don't even care Kings Speech won best picture (even though I favored Social Network) but there is no way his directing deserved to win. As you saw again in Les Mis his directing is nothing extraordinary.

Hopefully Hooper will miss at the Oscars. Maybe they'll go for PTA, Haneke, Tarantino or even Russell.

The other 4 seem pretty safe for nominations on thursday morning.

Coscarelli? For John dies at the end?

This bears out my theory: the critics give the individual films rapturous review of QT films when they come out, but when they think about them later they don't like them very much.

What about Wes Anderson?

I'm glad Tarantino was passed over. I think all he does is use the style of other, better directors in service of puerile, teenage boy fantasies of history.

Omg, Les Miserables has to win!!!

Your comment is the weakest link. Les Miserables is the best musical ever released in ages.

Oh look: another nutso shrieking Les Miz fan.

Yawn.

Grow up, people have a right to their opinion. The immaturity level here astounds me sometimes.

I think Tarantino would be a joke, that's why he didn't get nominated.

Just as the case of WGA... isn't Tarantino NOT a member? So he's always ineligible for DGA Award? (Robert Rodriquez too... think they both dropped out because they weren't allowed to co-direct).

by Anonymousreply 1901/08/2013

Tarantino was nominated in 2010.

by Anonymousreply 2001/08/2013

It depends on how arcane the DGA rules are. The WGA nominations were a joke this year because of it.

Haneke and Herzog are both fascist pricks in their own ways, but Haneke especially makes amazing films. He should be on this list whenever his releases are eligible.
