2023 DGA Awards predictions: Who will win at 75th Directors Guild of America Awards?

The Directors Guild of America announced its slate of 2023 nominees in film and television on January 11. Historically, the DGA Awards are seen as one of the strongest bellwethers to predict the Best Director Oscar category since there is so much overlap in voting memberships between the guild and the academy. Who will win at the Directors Guild this year? Read on to see Gold Derby’s 2023 DGA Awards predictions in three movie categories and four TV races.

Our DGA racetrack odds are based on the combined forecasts of more than 1,800 readers, including Experts we’ve polled from major media outlets, Editors who cover awards year-round for this website, Top 24 Users who did the best predicting the winners last time, All-Star Users who had the best prediction scores over the last two years, and the mass of Users who make up our biggest predictions bloc.

Of this year’s five DGA nominees for Best Director, only four went on to make it into the Oscar lineup: Todd Field (“Tár”), Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”), Martin McDonagh (“The Banshees of Inisherin”) and Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”). The fifth guild nominee, Joseph Kosinski (“Top Gun: Maverick”), was replaced by Ruben Ostlund (“Triangle of Sadness”) at the Academy Awards.

The winners of the 75th Directors Guild of America Awards will receive their trophies on Saturday, February 18, 2023. Special achievement prizes will be handed out that night to Robert A. Fishman, Mark Hansson and Valdez Flagg.
