DGA taps Lee, gives Oscar hint

January 2006
Hollywood Reporter -- International Edition;1/31/2006, Vol. 392 Issue 46, p37
The article reports that Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" was named 2005's best feature at the 58th annual Directors Guild of America Awards dinner, adding to the film's momentum with another key awards season honor. Lee might need more space for trophies because his love story about two ranch hands already has racked up awards for best picture and director from the Golden Globes and many critics' associations, as well as being named feature of the year by the Producers Guild of America a week ago. All indications are that it will be a major contender when the Academy Awards nominees are announced today.
