Damien Chazelle z nagrodą Gildii Reżyserów


Po raz 69 swoje nagrody przyznała Gildia Reżyserów Amerykańskich. W najważniejszej z kategorii zwyciężył Damien Chazelle, za reżyserię filmu „La La Land”.

Wygrana Chazelle’a utwierdza go na pozycji głównych faworytów do zdobycia Oscara za reżyserię. Nagrodę za debiut reżyserski otrzymał Garth Davis, autor „Lion. Droga do domu”. Najlepiej wyreżyserowany odcinek serialu dramatycznego to  “The Battle of the Bastards” autorstwa Miguela Sapochnika z „Gry o tron”. Becky Martin wyreżyserowała najlepszy odcinek serialu komediowego w „Figurantce”, a najlepiej wyreżyserowany odcinek filmu telewizyjnego lub miniserialu należy do Stevena Zailliana, autora „The Night Of”.

W historii nagród Gildii Reżyserów jedynie kilku tylko zdobywców tego wyróżnienia, później nie otrzymało Oscara za ten sam film. Byli to: Rob Marshall (“Chicago”), Ang Lee (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”), Francis Ford Coppola (“The Godfather”), Anthony Harvey (“The Lion in Winter”) i Robert Rossen (“All the King’s Men”). Trzech reżyserów mimo zdobycia nagrody Gildii nie zdobyło potem nawet nominacji do Oscara i byli to: Ben Affleck (“Argo”), Ron Howard (“Apollo 13”) i Steven Spielberg (“The Color Purple”). W trakcie wszystkich 67 poprzednich edycji nagród Gildii, aż 60-krotnie zdobywca tego wyróżnienia otrzymywał potem Oscara. W tym roku będzie zapewne podobnie.
