This year’s DGA Awards were one Saturday earlier — January 28. Here’s the DGA’s release:
LOS ANGELES – The Directors Guild of America today announced that the 65th Annual DGA Awards will take place on Saturday, February 2, 2013 in the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles. The decision to move the date by one week was made during the process of securing the venue. The DGA’s Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film has traditionally served as an accurate barometer for the Academy Award for Best Director. Only six times since the DGA Award’s inception in 1948 has the winner not gone on to receive the Academy Award for Best Director.
