Gravity: Alfonso Cuaron Wins at Directors Guild Awards

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The push for Gravity to score some serious Academy Awards hardware got a big boost. After all, it leads all movies with 10 Oscar nominations. Alfonso Cuaron has won the Best Director trophy at the Directors Guild Awards for his work on the mind-blowing space epic. The guild is a huge predictor of who wins the Best Director Academy Award come Oscar night. And, in some ways, this could also foresee who is likely to win Best Picture.

Cuaron seriously deserved the honor above all others, in our opinion. What he accomplished was a game-changer, as we reported in our Gravity review. To craft a film with such spectacle, scope and human emotion is nothing short of a miracle.

Cuaron beat out Paul Greengrass for his work on Captain Phillips, Steve McQueen for 12 Years a Slave, David O. Russell for his masterwork American Hustle and Martin Scorsese for The Wolf of Wall Street

Gravity Quotes

Matt Kowalski: Houston, I have a bad feeling about this mission.
Mission Control: Please elaborate.
Matt Kowalski: Well, it reminds of a story.

I get it. It's nice up here. You can just shut down all the systems, turn out all the lights, and just close your eyes and tune out everyone. There's nobody up here that can hurt you. It's safe.

If you decide to go, then you gotta just get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride. You gotta plant both your feet on the ground and start livin' life. Hey, Ryan? It's time to go home.
