Founded in 1936 as the Screen Directors Guild, the Directors Guild of America‘s annual awards show is a harbinger of what is to come at the Academy Awards. The DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film has gone on to win the Best Director Academy Award every year since 1948 with a mere six exceptions. This year’s winner was Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist.
