2020 DGA Awards nominations leave out Gerwig, Baumbach, but tap Bong Joon Ho, Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Taika Waititi

“1917” has quite a bit of momentum, now, I’d say.

The Directors Guild gave Sam Mendes a Best Director boost, along with the directors of “Parasite,” “Jo Jo Rabbit,” “Irishman” and “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood.”

An embarrassment of riches in this category, as Todd Phillips, Almodovar (not his best movie) and Marielle Helle of “Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” could have been nominated, but were passed over.

But women such as Ava DuVernay (TV film), and first time directors Alma Har’el (“Honey Boy”) and Melina Matskukas (“Queen & Skim”) were nominees in other categories.
