HOW'D THEY GET NOMINATED?
         
WHO WILL WIN?
Damien Chazelle has the edge with the most nominated film but some believe that Barry Jenkins could give him a run for the trophy and has been wracking up critics prizes
WHO WAS LEFT OUT?
The Directors Guild honored Garth Davis (Lion) who had a good shot here. My personal ballot included Park Chan-Wook (The Handmaiden) and Pablo Larraín (Jackie). Others thought Martin Scorsese (Silence) might rally at the last minute.
