Lee Secured Top Honor at DGA Awards



Ang Lee has been bestowed the title of Filmmaker of the Year by his peers at the 2006 Directors Guild of America Awards

Huge accolades keep coming on Ang Lee's way indeed, and this time it's the title of Filmmaker of the Year he has been bestowed of at the 2006 Directors Guild of America Awards, none other than for his remarkable work in "Brokeback Mountain." "Ang Lee is fierce in his timidity, his humbleness and his respect for everyone around him," so "Brokeback" actor, Jake Gyllenhaal, lauded when presenting the director with a medallion in honor of his nomination.

Winning this top honor on Saturday, the triumph certainly strengthened his position as the strong contender for being the 2006 Oscar nominee in Best Director category since the event is one of Hollywood's best barometers for the Academy Awards. Only six times in the 57-year history of the Guild honors has the winner failed to go on to win the directing Oscar.
