Scorsese, James among DGA documentary nominees
NEW YORK (AP) - Martin Scorsese isn't just nominated for a Directors Guild Award for "Hugo," but also for his documentary "George Harrison: Living in the Material World."
The Directors Guild of America announced its documentary nominees for the 64th annual Directors Guild Awards on Thursday.
Also nominated are Steve James for the Chicago anti-violence documentary "The Interrupters"; Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky for the West Memphis Three documentary "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory"; James Marsh for the chimpanzee rearing film "Project Nim"; and Richard Press for the fashion photographer documentary "Bill Cunningham New York."
Two of the selections _ "The Interrupters" and "George Harrison" _ were not among the Oscars' documentary short list of 15, from which it chooses five.
On Thursday, the academy announced that it has overhauled its often criticized documentary selection process. Beginning next year, the entire documentary branch within the academy will be able to vote on nominees, rather than just a selection committee.
The Directors Guild earlier this week nominated Scorsese, David Fincher ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"), Michel Hazanavicius ("The Artist"), Woody Allen ("Midnight in Paris") and Alexander Payne ("The Descendants") for its top filmmaking honors.
The guild will announce its winners at a Jan. 28 dinner, with Kelsey Grammer as host.
