Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese have received nods for Director’s Guild Awards.
Allen landed a DGA nomination for his comedy “Midnight in Paris.” He has previously been nominated five times for such films as “Annie Hall” (for which he won the award 34 years ago), “Manhattan,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” and “Crime and Misdemeanors.”
Scorsese, meanwhile, landed his ninth DGA nomination for “Hugo,” his first-ever film shot in 3-D. Said Scorsese (who won a DGA in the television category last year for his work on “Boardwalk Empire” and who won the feature film DGA five years ago for “The Departed”): “I am honored to have been recognized by my peers for my work on Hugo. [. . .] The fact that our picture honors the work of George’s Méliès, one of the inventors of cinema and an artistic forefather to us all, makes the nomination all the more meaningful.”
Other nominees for this year’s awards include David Fincher (for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”) and Alexander Payne (for “The Descendants”). Missing from the list of nominees this year are Steven Spielberg and Terrence Malick.
