  • MontyCircus

    Inarritu has won back-to-back Feature Film Directors Guild awards, the first time in history that’s been done. And now only Steven Spielberg has won more (3). What’s more, “Birdman” and “The Revenant” were both enjoyable films!

  • MaxJohnson1971

    Miller deserved it.

    • ArielVronsky

      Just because he used practical effects doesn’t mean he created the new “Lawrence of Arabia”. I love MAD MAX but it’s not…a Masterpiece, Stop.

      • MaxJohnson1971

        I don’t think he deserves it because he used practical effects. I genuinely think it was a better directed film than the others.
