Kathryn Bigelow has become the first woman to win the DGA award for Outstanding Direction of a Feature Film with The Hurt Locker, defeating James Cameron‘s Avatar. This makes Hurt Locker the favorite for at this year’s Academy Awards. As Roger Ebert points out, only 6 times in 60 years has the DGA winner NOT won the Oscar for Best Picture, and in 58 of the last 60 years, the DGA winner went on to win the Oscar for best director.  A full listing of Director’s Guild of America award winners can be found after the jump.
