Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu who directed “The Revenant” has received his second consecutive Directors Guild of America award for best feature film at the 68th annual DGA Awards. Last year, he bagged the same award for Birdman and also won three Oscars for best picture, original screenplay and director.
An emotional Inarritu fought back tears on accepting the trophy from The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper.
Note: Steven Spielberg is the only director to have won the DGA feature trophy three times.
The Directors Guild of America (DGA) is an entertainment guild which represents the interests of film and television directors in the United States motion picture industry and abroad. Founded as the Screen Directors Guild in 1936, the group merged with the Radio and Television Directors Guild in 1960 to become the modern Directors Guild of America.
