The Directors Guild of America is handing out its annual awards in film and TV from the Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton.

DGA president Lesli Linka Glatter opened the 2024 DGA Awards ceremony on Saturday with an acknowledgment of last year’s historic double strike. “I struggle to find words to address the pain everyone faced in our industry in our collective fight to get what we all deserve,” said Glatter, who noted how great it was to be back on set. “We are thankful that we are back doing the work that we love with exceptional new creative and economic protections for DGA members and so many others. Our sister guilds, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA, had difficult fights and achieved strong deals on behalf of their members.”

Glatter also looked ahead at the upcoming negotiations between IATSE and the AMPTP. “Now it is time to support IATSE and the Teamsters in their upcoming battle,” she said. “We won’t be satisfied until we all have fair contracts that reward all of us for our work, creating a vibrant, sustainable industry that fairly values everyone’s contributions.”

Host Judd Apatow also referenced last year’s strike — and the DGA avoiding its own work stoppage. “My agent said that I should hold out for more money, but in the spirit of the DGA I accepted their first offer,” said Apatow, who marked his fifth time emceeing the ceremony. “Ultimately, what did we learn from the strikes? We learned that Fran Drescher is the voice of reason, and unfortunately, that’s what reason sounds like. And two, audiences love watching old shows that have been on a lot of seasons. They don’t care at all if they’re new.”

This year’s nominees for the top prize of outstanding directorial achievement in theatrical feature film are Greta Gerwig (Barbie), Yorgos Lanthimos (Poor Things), Christopher Nolan (Oppenheimer), Alexander Payne (The Holdovers) and Martin Scorsese (Killers of the Flower Moon).

Last year, Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan won the top prize for Everything Everywhere All at Once, ahead of winning best director at the 2023 Oscars.

Lanthimos, Nolan and Scorsese are all nominated for the best director Oscar this year, alongside Jonathan Glazer (The Zone of Interest) and Justine Triet (Anatomy of a Fall).

Gerwig and Payne were notably not nominated for best director at the 2024 Oscars, with Gerwig’s snub in this category becoming a major topic of conversation after this year’s Oscar nominations were announced.

In the first-time feature film director category, named for former DGA president Michael Apted, the nominees are Cord Jefferson (American Fiction), Manuela Martelli (Chile ’76), Noora Niasari (Shayda), A.V. Rockwell (A Thousand and One) and Celine Song (Past Lives).

In the TV categories, Succession dominated the dramatic series nominees, taking four out of five slots, with The Last of Us also earning a nod. The comedy series category features two nods each for The Bear and Ted Lasso with Bill Hader scoring the final nod for Barry. In the TV movie and limited series category, Lessons in Chemistry scored three nods, with All the Light We Cannot See and Daisy Jones & The Six rounding out the nominees.

The DGA nominees in the documentary category are Moses Bwayo and Christopher Sharp (Bobi Wine: The People’s President), Mstyslav Chernov (20 Days in Mariupol), Madeleine Gavin (Beyond Utopia), Davis Guggenheim (Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie) and D. Smith (Kokomo City).

The Directors Guild will also honor David Nutter with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Television, Janet G. Knutsen with the Frank Capra Achievement Award and Gary Natoli with the Franklin J. Schaffner Achievement Award.
