DGA finds the love

Directors honors their own at kudos

It was a night for storytelling — both at the podium and onscreen — at the 63rd Directors Guild of America Awards at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.

The DGAs is celebrating its 75th anniversary and to start off the new year, they created informative videos, “DGA Moments in Time,” about important moments in history for not only the organization, but in film history.

One of the planned presenters, Martin Scorsese, could not make it Saturday night due to illness. Steven Spielberg stepped in to introduce Scorsese’s assigned video, adding, “He’s making his first 3-D movie. I’m certain that’s what gave him pneumonia.”

Emcee Carl Reiner began the evening by requesting that everyone turn on their cell phones. To quizzical expressions he replied, “I’m not kidding. There’s nothing that’s going to happen here as important as the phone call you might be getting.”

Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter both amused the crowd with their presentation for “The King’s Speech” director Tom Hooper. Later that evening, when Hooper won, he said, “I only wish we had the other corner of the triangle of man-love, which is Colin, me and Geoffrey Rush, so we could fully celebrate.” Turning to Bonham Carter, he added, “And Helena, thank you for managing to hide your jealousy of the triangle of man-love when you were on camera.”
