The Winners of the 73rd Annual Directors Guild of America Awards
The Directors Guild of America (DGA) has just finished handing out their awards for 2020, with the entirely expected result of Chloe Zhao taking the top prize for "Nomadland". At this point, anyone else winning would have been considered a major upset as she's dominated the category throughout awards season, with the final result inevitably being her winning the Oscar.
