When the 2018 Directors Guild of America Awards are handed out on Saturday, February 3, expect many famous faces to be in attendance at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. Among the list of presenters are A-list celebs including Amy Schumer (two-time DGA contender for “Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” and “Inside Amy Schumer”), Oscar nominees like Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”), and past DGA winners like last year’s “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle. Scroll down to see the complete list of DGA Awards presenters.
Besides Chazelle, the other former DGA champs who will present a trophy at Saturday’s ceremony are Don Mischer, Jay D. Roth and Thomas Schlamme. Mischer is a multiple DGA winner for “We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial,” “Great Performances” and “The Kennedy Center Honors,” to name just a few. Roth was last year’s President’s Award DGA honoree. And Schlamme prevailed for directing two of Aaron Sorkin‘s TV shows, “Sports Night” and “The West Wing.”
As is customary, all five of this year’s nominees for Best Film Director — Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”) and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) — will receive special medallions and give speeches at the podium. Start the guessing game down in the comments section for which presenters YOU think will be matched up with these directing nominees.
