Campion the Champion.

The Directors Guild of America Award or the DGA was recently awarded the best directors of 2022 on Saturday. In the DGA, Jane Campion came out at the top and bagged the biggest prize of the Directors Guild Awards that is the Theatrical Feature Film award.

Campion won the Theatrical Feature Film award for her western movie, The Power of the Dog. And you are most probably set for the Oscars if you get the best prize at the DGA. Here are more details:

What is DGA?

The Directors Guild of America Award or the DGA is an annual occurrence where the awards are issued annually to the best Directors given by the Directors Guild of America.

As for what the Directors Guild of America is, well, it is a guild made up of directors who represent the interests of television and film directors of either the United States motion picture industry or any director from abroad.

Last year, Chloé Zhao scooped the top prize for a feature film for the movie ‘Nomadland’. This year, Jane Campion became the third woman ever to receive this award.

Jane Campion on Winning

Jane became the winner for the Theatrical Feature film award for her movie ‘The Power of the Dog’. In her winning speech, Campion said “I’m so really moved and honored by this voting for me,” and then thanked her teacher and master Paul Thomas Anderson, who was also nominated for DGA for Licorice Pizza.

Campion added: “I’m here because I care about women having voices, and I’m so excited about the next generation of filmmakers”. This victory has given her a boost as a front runner for the Academy Awards which is scheduled for 27th March. The last time Jane won an Oscar was in 1993 for The Piano for Original Screenplay.
