DGA awards announce ceremony spot

Hollywood and Highland to be next locale

The Directors Guild of America has opted to return to Hollywood and Highland for its 64th annual awards ceremonies on Jan. 28.

The DGA made the announcement Friday along with disclosing the timeline for its awards season, starting Sept. 6 with the mailing of entry forms to distributors, networks and past entries. Feature nominations will be announced on Jan. 9, with TV and commercial noms the next day and docu bids on Jan. 12.

The DGA had previously announced that it would hold the kudos on Jan. 28. The Writers Guild of America has set Feb. 19 as the date for its 2012 awards ceremonies, a week before the Academy Awards, with simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.

The WGA has selected the Hollywood Palladium as the venue in Los Angeles but hasn’t announced the Gotham locale. The Producers Guild of America has set its awards at the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 21.

The Century Plaza, long a favored venue for the PGA, WGA and DGA awards shows, will remain shunned again next year by the three orgs due to the ongoing labor dispute between unionized hotel workers and the Hyatt Corp. The three orgs stayed away this year because of the dispute.

The Screen Actors Guild’s awards ceremonies will take place Jan. 29 at its usual locale, the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center.
