Kathryn Bigelow Bests James Cameron to Win Director's Guild Award
Top honors at the Director’s Guild Award went to Kathryn Bigelog for “The Hurt Locker” == a win over Jame’s Cameron’s “Avatar” that certainly gives Bigelow the inside track for the Best Directing Oscar and makes The Hurt Locker a strong contender and possibly favorite for the Best Picture Oscar. It was the second big win in a row for Bigelow and The Hurt Locker — the first being last week’s Producer’s Guild win. The two wins over Bigelow’s former husband James Cameron have certainly knocked down any sense that Avatar will cruise to a Best Picture/Best Director win at the Oscars. This is the first DGA Award win for a woman. The most recent film to win both the Producer’s Guild and Director’s Guild top prize and not go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars was Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain.
