The DGA hosted their 67th annual awards in Los Angeles in a non-televised ceremony hosted by Jane Lynch, and while the Oscar frontrunners for some categories have become very clear throughout this award season, like actors, best director and best picture seem to remain somewhat up in the air. Both Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” and González Iñárritu’s “Birdman” have won several awards. Legend has it that every director that wins at the Directors Guild Awards, wins the Academy Award and that was the case for González Iñárritu last night. They say the same applies for Best Picture with the Producers Guild Awards, which Iñárritu took home as well.

Last year’s DGA and Oscar winner, “Gravity” director Alfonso Cuarón, handed the honor to his fellow Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu who said, “If this is considered a great movie, it had nothing to do with me. It’s a miracle!” Backstage during an interview, Iñárritu explained how directing is a very demanding job and it separates you from beautiful things, “but when things like these happen, they reaffirm the connection between you and your loved ones, and I believe that’s what this is all about.” Below is the full list of winners:
