DGA Awards and Annie Awards FINAL PREDICTIONS

Tonight is both the Directors Guild of America Awards, celebrating the best directorial achievements of the year, and the Annie Awards, which celebrates the best of animation. These are both key for the Oscars, but DGA is massive as it could point us into the direction of who is going to win Best Director, and it could even tell us our Best Picture winner, especially if Adam McKay or Tom McCarthy cause an upset. Essentially, if McKay or McCarthy wins, it’s all over in Best Picture. If Inarritu wins, it really becomes a dead heat in Best Picture. If George Miller wins, it is increasingly likely that Mad Max: Fury Road is likely to sweep a lot of categories, and win the most awards on the night. If Ridley Scott wins, it’s all to play for in Director, and the Oscar is up for grabs as Scott isn’t nominated. Anyway, here are my predictions:

George Miller is nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award for his work on Mad Max: Fury Road, which is nominated for 10 Academy Awards.
