George Clooney, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Aniston & More At 2012 Director’s Guild Awards [PHOTOS]

The Director’s Guild Awards always brings out an interesting crowd because it celebrities film and television, including soap operas. 

French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius, who produced the black-and-white silent movie The Artist, has won a Directors Guild of America award in an indication that the film stands a good chance of winning an Oscar next month.

Hazanavicius competed for the outstanding achievement in feature film award with two big-name Hollywood directors, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese, respective producers of Midnight in Paris and Hugo. Also competing for the DGA awards Saturday were David Fincher, director of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Alexander Payne, producer of The Descendants. It was the first time Hazanavicius, whose film won three Golden Globes on January 16, competed for a DGA award.

Since 1948, only six DGA award winners have failed to also take the Oscar for best director, one of the most prestigious awards in Hollywood.

The fashion was out in full force of course. Jennifer Aniston wore another little black dress. This time the dress designer was Dolce&Gabbana. She accessorized with Justin Theroux and Fred Leighton jewels.

Actress Amber Heard looked stunning as usual in the Roland Mouret Grindley navy jersey gown. The 20-year-old Descendants star Shailene Woodley looked age appropriate in a deep red Valentino dress.
