“Slumdog” Wins DGA Award

With “Slumdog Millionaire”‘s win last night of the Directors Guild of America (DGA) award, for Danny Boyle, the movie has now swept the major guild honors. Which means it would take a mammoth upset for it not to win the Best Picture Oscar on February 22. The problem with “Slumdog” being the overwhelming favorite? That the Academy Awards’ TV ratings, which had sunk already because of “Dark Knight” being denied a Best Picture nom, are going to sink even lower, because there will be no suspense about the biggest prize.
