The Results Of The 72nd Annual Directors Guild of America Awards

Saturday evening was a grand gala for filmmakers and television directors, as the 72nd annual Directors Guild of America Awards were held at the Ritz-Carlton in Downtown Los Angeles. Hosted by writer/director Judd Apatow, the event honored nominated film and television directors for their artistic contributions in 2019. The DGA Awards is often seen as a clear prediction for who will win the Best Director prize at the Academy Awards. In its previous 71 years of existence, the gala has only been wrong on seven occasions. Last year, Alfonso Cuarón won Best Director at both the DGA and the Oscars for Roma.

Here are the winners of last night’s DGA Awards:
