Lost In Translation Is A Dga Favourite

BILL MURRAY's quirky comedy LOST IN TRANSLATION has been given a huge OSCARS boost - it's the favourite to win a DIRECTORS GUILD AWARD next month (FEB04).

Director SOFIA COPPOLA will challenge GARY ROSS (SEABISCUIT), CLINT EASTWOOD (MYSTIC RIVER), PETER JACKSON (THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING) and PETER WEIR (MASTER + COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD) at the 7 February (04) ceremony.

But DGA officials have snubbed ANTHONY MINGHELLA's NICOLE KIDMAN-starring blockbuster COLD MOUNTAIN, which is leading the race for a GOLDEN GLOBE and is a clear OSCAR favourite.
