‘The Artist’ Wins Directors Guild Award

It's yet another win for The Artist in yet another award that holds a pretty accurate prediction for the Oscars. The mostly silent film won the top honor at the Directors Guild of America Awards Saturday night. Only six times in 63 years did the winner of the guild awards not win the Oscar for best director. The Artist’s Michel Hazanavicius, a French filmmaker, has been mostly unknown until he won over many critics with his black-and-white crowd-pleaser.
