Slumdog takes DGA
“Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle was the winner at the Directors Guild Awards on Saturday night in Los Angeles, adding further fuel to the momentum for the film heading into the Oscar stretch run. At this point, it will be considered a huge upset if “Slumdog” doesn’t win Best Picture—although some are saying Boyle might not win Best Director. One scenario has David Fincher winning Best Director for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
But how can you be the best director but not the director of the best picture?
