The Directors Guild of America has revealed 23 presenters who will take part in Saturday’s DGA Awards 2019 ceremony. The 71st annual event, hosted by Aisha Tyler, will be held February 2 in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.
Last year’s DGA feature film winner was Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”) and first-time directing champ was Jordan Peele (“Get Out”). Both men have been announced as presenters for this weekend, most likely announcing the newest winners for those same categories.
Another annual tradition for this event is that the five feature film nominees are introduced by cast members from their movies, who also present them with nomination medallions. Expected to take part in that tradition (confirmed to attend but not necessarily for this task) this time are the following:
Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) presented by Sam Elliott.
Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”) presented by Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira.
Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”) presented by Linda Cardellini and Viggo Mortensen.
Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) presented by Laura Harrier and John David Washington.
Adam McKay (“Vice”) presented by Christian Bale.
Other presenters announced for the ceremony are: Paris Barclay, Tony Hale, Dennis Haysbert, Brian Tyree Henry, Ron Howard, Dolores Huerta, Quincy Jones, Stan Lathan, Sarah Paulson, Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Octavia Spencer and Constance Wu. Other celebrities might be revealed by the end of the week.
