The Directors Guild of America reveals its nominees for Best Director and Best First-Time Director tomorrow, the 12th of January, but its nominees for Best Documentary Director are already here. Fascinating, isn't it? Shame that they couldn't find more room for female directors, since they certainly had plenty of deserving choices from which to pick. Winners in all categories announced on the 4th of February.

Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary
Otto Bell (The Eagle Huntress)
Ezra Edelman (O.J.: Made in America)
Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg (Weiner)
Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro)
Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated)
