Damien Chazelle & Garth Davis Win the 2017 Directors Guild Awards

Directors Guild Awards

As expected, La La Land director Damien Chazelle won the main prize for Best Director, meaning he’ll likely go on to win the Oscar. Lion director Garth Davis won the award for Best First Feature. The Directors Guild Awards are one of the top awards in Hollywood, and it’s exciting to see Damien Chazelle win. This is is his first nomination, and his first win, despite getting lots of attention for Whiplash he didn’t make the cut that year.
