2019 DGA Award Winners: Alfonso Cuarón Victory Means Oscar Gold is Likely /Film – /FILM

2019 DGA Award Winners

Awards season has brought another key victory for the powerful Mexican drama Roma. Last night, the Director’s Guild of America handed out their 2019 awards, and Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film went to Alfonso Cuarón for his work behind the camera on the Netflix movie. After winning one of the 2019 DGA Awards, it’s practically a done deal that he’ll walk away with the Oscar for Best Director. But that wasn’t the only award handed out.

Bo Burnham landed the award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Film Director, giving Bradley Cooper his second loss of the night. It’s a well-deserved victory for the indie gem Eighth Grade that should have been given many more nominations during awards season.

As for documentary, a win for Tim Wardle and Three Identical Strangers feels a little like an upset. Won’t You Be My Neighbor and Free Solo have been favorites on the documentary circuit, despite the former being snubbed at the Oscars. But it’s not as if Three Identical Strangers wasn’t deserving, so it’s still an award worth celebrating.

Meanwhile, on the television side, Adam McKay won one of his two nominations for the HBO series Succession. And it wasn’t the only victory for HBO as Bill Hader won the comedy directing award for Barry. But the award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television and Limited Series landed at Showtime with Ben Stiller winning for Escape at Dannemora.

For the full list of winners, including plenty more television categories, head to the DGA website.
