The DGA is the last industry group to speak up before tomorrow's Oscar ballot deadline, so it may be too late for it wield any influence, but its timing is possibly a very strong indicator of what our top tier Best Picture contenders are.
To nobody's surprise, Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea) all assumed their preordained spots in the DGA lineup.
Over in the documentary category, the DGA went with O.J.: Made in America, Weiner, I Am Not Your Negro, The Eagle Huntress and Life, Animated. All five are still in the running for Oscar.
