Tom Hooper Scores DGA Award for Best Director

Tom Hooper won Best Feature Film Director for The King’s Speech at Saturday's Directors Guild Awards, leaving former front-runner (and Golden Globe winner) David Fincher empty-handed. Martin Scorsese also took home an award for Boardwalk Empire, and Michael Spiller for Modern Family. There have only been six DGA Award winners who have not won the Academy Award for Best Director, so this is a game-changer for Oscar predictions. Rethink your bets. Don't gamble everything on The Social Network! [Deadline]
