Tom Hooper Edges Out David Fincher At The DGA's Last Night

 

Tom Hooper won Best Director at last nights Directors Guild Award honors for The King's Speech. He beat out David Fincher who was heavily favored after winning the Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award for The Social Network.

This win moves Hooper even closer to Oscar gold because the winner of the DGA has won the Oscar in all but 6 years of the history of the ceremony. This is because many voters for the Guild are area also the same voters for the Academy Awards.
