NEW YORK —
An unusually busy day in a truncated awards season for Hollywood left five movies — Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” Sam Mendes‘ “1917,” Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” and Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit” — on the head of the Oscar pack.
All five were nominated Tuesday for the dwell prize of both the Directors Guild Awards and the Producers Guild Awards, two of the most reliable Academy Awards bellwethers.
All however “1917,” which took high honors Sunday on the Golden Globes, were nominated by the commerce’s leading three guild awards. The Show disguise Actors Guild earlier chosen “Once Upon a Time .. in Hollywood,” “Parasite,” “The Irishman” and “Jojo Rabbit” for its greatest award, most efficient ensemble.
Tuesday’s uncommon confluence of bulletins puts awards season into hyper flee. The Academy Awards moved up plenty of weeks to Feb. 9 this 365 days, squeezing the pre-Oscars calendar. The British Academy Film Awards also unveiled their nominations Tuesday, with “Joker” leading all movies with 11 nods and an all-white appearing enviornment that immediately sparked criticism.
Oscar prognosticators pay specific consideration to the Producers Guild, which selects 10 movies for the 365 days. Except for the above five movies, the producers also nominated “Joker,” “Marriage Narrative,” “Knives Out,” “Diminutive Ladies folks” and “Ford v Ferrari“ for its annual high prize, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award.

In its 71-365 days historic previous, the Directors Guild has only nominated eight ladies folks for many effective director. The ideal was Greta Gerwig in 2018 for “Lady Chicken,” however she did no longer create the chop this 365 days for “Diminutive Ladies folks.”
While feminine filmmakers had a historic 365 days on the field save of enterprise in 2019, they’ve been largely on the outdoor this awards season. The Globes did no longer nominate a girl for many effective director, or purchase a feminine-directed movie for its 10 most efficient image nominees.
The guild’s nominees for many effective first-time director were more balanced. Up for that award are: Mati Diop („Atlantics“), Alma Har’el („Honey Boy“), Melina Matsoukas („Queen & Slim“), Joe Talbot („Final Unlit Man in San Francisco“) and Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz („The Peanut Butter Falcon“).
