Scorsese, Allen, Fincher, Hazanavicius and Payne earn Directors Guild nominations
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' "Hugo" filmmaker Martin Scorsese and "Midnight in Paris" creator Woody Allen are among nominees for top filmmaking honors from the Directors Guild of America.
Also nominated Monday for the 64th annual Directors Guild honors are David Fincher for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo;" Michel Hazanavicius for "The Artist;" and Alexander Payne for "The Descendants."
The Directors Guild field is one of Hollywood's most-accurate forecasts for who will be in the running at the Academy Awards, whose nominations come out Jan. 24. The winner at the Directors Guild almost always goes on to win the directing prize at the Oscars, too.
The guild will announce its winners at a Jan. 28 dinner, with Kelsey Grammer as host.
