Awards Watch: Critics Choice Winners & DGA Nominees

The Directors Guild announceds its nominees today. Given that the DGA is usually a good indicator of Best Picture & Best Director Oscar nominations, it's good news for Into The Wild and Michael Clayton, bad news for Juno and Atonement. Of course, when the Producers Guild announces its nominees, this could all turn around again. Meanwhile, the Critics Choice Award winners were announced yesterday and show No Country For Old Men, Daniel Day-Lewis, Julie Christie and Amy Ryan all continuing to hold strong.
