Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron Reunited Once More For DGA Nominations


As foreseen back when this year's Golden Globe nominations were announced, the Awards Season Battle of the Exes will carry over into at least one more ceremony. This time it's the Director's Guild of America Awards, which announced Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron as two of its five nominees for its top prize for 2009. Read on for the remaining three (whom you can probably guess, alas -- it's that kind of year).

The Hurt Locker and Avatar directors join Lee Daniels (Precious), Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) as the five finalists for the 62nd annual kudos. This should effectively knock Rob Marshall out of the running for Nine once and for all; dark-dark-dark-dark horse Roland Emmerich was sadly shut out as well. Next time, Rolly.

The winner will be announced Jan. 30 at the DGA Awards ceremony.
