Final pundits' predix for Directors Guild of America nominations

January 7, 2009 |  9:33 pm

Last pundit predix for Directors Guild of America nominations. The DGA nominations will be unveiled early Thursday. Earlier we asked more than a dozen gurus to pipe in with predix, which can be viewed here and here.

Now for our final three views. Bob Tourtellotte (Reuters) and Pete Hammond (Notes on a Season, The Envelope) agree with the consensus forecast: Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire"), David Fincher ("Curious Case of Benjamin Button"), Ron Howard ("Frost/Nixon"), Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight") and Gus Van Sant ("Milk").

That notorious rascal T.L. Stanley (Gold Rush, Hollywood Reporter) agrees with four of those calls, but drops Ron Howard for John Patrick Shanley ("Doubt").
