Despite the recent child exploitation controversy, Slumdog Millionaire has continued its march towards the 2009 Academy Awards with a win in the 61st Director’s Guild of America for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film (to Danny Boyle).

This confirms that both the film and the director are favourites for the Best Picture and Best Director awards at the Oscars next month.

By the way, the other nominees were: David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Ron Howard (Frost/Nixon), Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) and Gus Van Sant (Milk).

Personally I thought it was great that Christopher Nolan finally got some recognition for his outstanding effort in The Dark Knight.
