AceShowbiz - Winners of the 2024 Directors Guild of America Awards have been fully revealed during a live ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Saturday night, February 10 ceremony saw Christopher Nolan securing the top prize.

Christopher took home the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film prize for "Oppenheimer". He beat up the likes of Greta Gerwig ("Barbie"), Yorgos Lanthimos ("Poor Things"), Alexander Payne ("The Holdovers") and Martin Scorsese ("Killers of the Flower Moon").

Meanwhile, Celine Song won the DGA award for a First-Time Feature Film Director for "Past Lives". It was also a good night for Peter Hoar as he claimed the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Dramatic Series award, thanks to HBO's "The Last of Us".

Christopher Storer was among the winners at the annual event as he earned the trophy of Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy Series for "The Bear". Picking up the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television and Limited Series honor was Sarah Adina Smith for "Lessons in Chemistry".

DGA president Lesli Linka Glatter kicked off the event with an acknowledgment of the SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes that forced studios to suspend productions for six months in 2023. "This year members need that connection [at the DGA Awards} over our shared craft even more now, because the last year was so f**king challenging. That was not on the teleprompter," Lesli said.

Lesli went on to highlight several issues that creative unions still need to address, including advances in AI. She noted that the DGA became the first union in the U.S. to achieve contract protections regarding the growing technology, stating, "We have never needed the protection and strength of the DGA more."
