Coen brothers win top DGA honor


Joel and Ethan Coen won the top DGA prize for "No Country for Old Men" on Saturday in a kudofest marked by high spirits over the guild's speedy contract resolution with the AMPTP one week earlier. It's the first DGA win for the directing siblings, who beat out Paul Thomas Anderson ("There Will Be Blood"), Tony Gilroy ("Michael Clayton"), Sean Penn ("Into the Wild") and Julian Schnabel ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") for top honors at the 60th annual Directors Guild of America kudofest in Century City. Kudo is considered a reliable Oscar indicator because most years it aligns with the Academy Award's helming honors. Fifty-three of the past 59 DGA winners have gone on to win the Oscar that season, including "The Departed" last year.
