'Avatar' and 'The Hurt Locker' Directors Among 2010 DGA Awards Noms


'Avatar' helmer James Cameron and his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow, who directed 'The Hurt Locker', will up against each other at the 62nd Annual DGA Awards.

James Cameron will compete against his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow for the Directors Guild of America's (DGA) top honour later this month (30Jan10). Cameron won the DGA Feature Film Award 12 years ago for epic love story "Titanic" and he's nominated for the prize again for his sci-fi blockbuster "Avatar".

Bigelow - who divorced the filmmaker in 1991 - is a first-time nominee, earning the nod for her war film "The Hurt Locker". Lee Daniels ("Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire"), Jason Reitman ("Up in the Air") and Quentin Tarantino ("Inglourious Basterds") have also been nominated for the Guild prize.

TV, documentary and commercial nominations will be announced on Friday (08Jan10). The 62nd annual awards will be presented at a Los Angeles banquet on 30 January (10).
