In the wake of Tuesday's announcement by the motion picture academy that Oscar nominations will be revealed on Jan. 10, five days earlier than originally scheduled, the Directors Guild of America has bumped its own dates for nominations by two days each.

The guild will announced the five film directors contending for this important precursor prize on Jan. 8. And the TV and commerical helmers in contention will be revealed on Jan. 9. The doc directors in the running will still be named on Jan. 14.

Last year, the DGA nominations were announced on Jan. 9, four days before the deadline for Oscar nomination ballots. This year, those ballots, whether completed online or by paper, must be in the hands of the Oscar accountants by Jan. 3. Thus, the DGA nominations will have no bearing on the slate of directors in contention for the Oscars.

However, the Producers Guild of America is scheduled to reveal its nominations on that Oscar deadline day of Jan. 3. 

The 65th annual DGA Awards will take place on Feb. 2. That is six days before the start of final Oscar voting. The DGA winner has gone on to prevail at the Oscars in all but six instances in the history of these kudos.
