"Hurt Locker" Director Becomes First Woman to Win DGA Award

Posted: February 1st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hurt Locker" Director Becomes First Woman to Win DGA AwardSubmit Comment
Director Guild of America has recently announced its five nominees for the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2009.

On that list were Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), James Cameron (Avatar), Lee Daniels (Precious), Jason Reitman (Up in the Air), and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds).

DGA has now announced that Bigelow is the winner for "The Hurt Locker," which is about an elite bomb squad. Bigelow is the first woman to receive the honor in the organization's 62-year history. And it must have been great to beat James Cameron, who she was married to from 1989 to 1991.

Winning this award also gives Bigelow better chances of winning the Best Director Academy Award. DGA's winners have went on to win the Oscar, all but six times.

Wasn't he married to Linda Hamilton to? How many times has this dude been married? They probably hit the road after he won't shut up about 8 foot tall blue people.

Correction: He's been married 5 times. He was married to Bigelow before Hamilton. Dude's a player haha.

I've always been impressed by Bigelow's work. Its about time she got recognized. Near Dark, Blue Steel, and Point Break are classics. Some of the guys can learn a lot from her.

In other news- Sam Worthington was named new head chairman of F.A.G, replacing long time leader Alec Baldwin. He has yet to select a co chairman. of the nominees listed, Gary Coleman and Channing Tatum were top picks in this category, more as it develops.

The movie was a metaphor for what her vagina went though being married to Cameron.
