The Producers Guild of America announced its nominees for the PGA Awards on Wednesday, and the Directors Guild of America followed suit as it announced its nominees for the DGA Awards on Thursday.
This year’s nominees in the feature film category are Clint Eastwood for his boxing drama Million Dollar Baby, Marc Forster for the J.M. Barrie story Finding Neverland, Taylor Hackford for the Ray Charles biopic Ray, Alexander Payne for his much-lauded buddy road film Sideways and Martin Scorsese for The Aviator, which tells the life story of billionaire Howard Hughes.
