Who won this year’s Directors Guild Award?

The movies involved this year were quite diverse in genres and tones. 

You had James Cameron for the special effects-driven Avatar – the highest grossing movie of all time.

Kathryn Bigelow was nominated for The Hurt Locker, a critically praised indie film.

Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti-Western-meets-Holocaust-revenge movie Inglorious Basterds.

Also, Jason Reitman was nominated for directing the George Clooney drama Up in The Air.

And finally, you have Lee Daniels; who directed the heavy, emotionally draining drama Precious.

So who walked away with the award?

That honor would go to Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker.
