The Directors Guild of America has announced the nominees for its DGA Award honoring outstanding directing in feature film.
"In a year full of excellent films, DGA members have nominated a stellar group of passionate filmmakers," said DGA president Paris Barclay. "Inspiring and artistic, these five directors made films that left an indelible impact not only on their fellow directors and members of the director's team, but on audiences around the world."
Directors who missed out on this year's list include Ava DuVernay for "Selma" and Angelina Jolie for "Unbroken," as well as David Fincher ("Gone Girl"), Bennett Miller ("Foxcatcher") and Christopher Nolan ("Interstellar").
The winner will be revealed at the 67th Annual DGA Awards Dinner on Feb. 7, 2015, hosted by actress Jane Lynch.
