ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ INARRITU WINS SECOND CONSECUTIVE DGA AWARD, DOESN'T DESERVE THIS ONE EITHER


You ever hear of the director who won two back-to-back DGA awards? No, you didn't, because it's never happened before. But it happened yesterday, as Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu won the Feature Film category for The Revenant, beating four other nominees who each and all a) had never won before, and b) deserved to win more than he did. Kinda reminds me of last year, when almost exactly the same shit transpired. The winner of the Documentary category was Matthew Heineman for Cartel Land - a much finer choice, imo - and Ex Machina's Alex Garland in the inaugural First Time Director category.
