Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón (pictured) won the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film prize for his film Gravity at the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America (DGA) Awards which were announced at a dinner ceremony last night in Los Angeles. Having won the Golden Globe and DGA Award for Best Director, Cuarón becomes the frontrunner to win the Academy Award in that category.
"This is truly an honor and I'm humbled by it," said Cuarón in his acceptance speech, winning the DGA prize on his first nomination. And he added: "Move the actor as little as possible and move the universe around the actor. That's pretty much how actors work, right?"
