'Waiting for Superman' and 'Inside Job' lead DGA Doc nominees
A first timer will win the directing honor this year
It's hard to believe, but acclaimed documentary filmmakers Charles Ferguson, Alex Gibney and Davis Guggenheim have never been honored by their peers in the Director's Guild of America. That's about to change. The three filmmakers join Lixian Fan ("Last Train Home") and Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger ("Restrepo") as this year's DGA Award nominees for outstanding direction in a documentary film. In fact, of the three only Gibney had been nominated before. Guggenheim was passed over for "An Inconvienent Truth" and Fergueson for "No End in Sight." In any event, this could be a very similar list to what this year's documentary nominees end up being. Unless Banksy's "Exit through the Gift Shop" makes it which we'll believe it when we see it.
