In what is considered a fairly reliable predictor of the Oscar race, Birdman’s Alejandro G. Inarritu took top film honors at the 67th annual Directors Guild of America Awards. The festivities took place the evening of February 6th at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City. The complete list of winners follow, including TV, Commercials, and Documentaries.
