The race for Best Picture took an interesting turn tonight as Sam Mendes took the top DGA Award prize for Best Director of a Feature Film for “1917.” The Universal Release has now won both the PGA Award and the DGA Awards top honor. The third major guild honor, the Best Ensemble Award at the SAG Awards, went to “Parasite.” The last time a film won both the PGA and the DGA and didn’t win Best Picture was when “Moonlight” triumphed over “La La Land” 2017.

Alma Har’el was honored with the First-Time Feature award for Amazon Studios’ “Honey Boy.” “American Factor,” the potential Best Documentary winner at the Oscars, put Netflix on the board while “Barry” (Bill Hader’s second straight win) “Chernobyl” and “Watchmen” wins were notable for HBO.
