If this isn't Martin Scorsese's year, I don't know what will be. On Saturday the helmer of The Departed was named the Directors Guild of America's top filmmaker of '07. Should he fail to go on to win an Oscar, he will be one of only seven directors who weren't able to parlay DGA victories into success at the Academy Awards. I think there's also some bylaw stating that Woody Allen would be allowed to give him a wedgie with no fear of retribution.
