Cuaron wins Directors Guild prize

Alfonso Cuaron has won a top film honour for his space movie Gravity.

The filmmaker was given the coveted Outstanding Directorial Achievement In Feature Film award by the Directors Guild of America.

The film's star Sandra Bullock was on hand to see the director pick up the gong, and dazzled on the red carpet in a black strapless Roland Mouret dress with a thigh high split.

The win could give Cuaron the edge at the Oscars, as the Directors Guild recipient nearly always goes on to claim the best director gong on Hollywood's biggest night.

Other winners included Steven Soderbergh, who won for Outstanding Directorial Achievement In Movies For Television And Mini-Series for Behind The Candelabra. He also picked up the Robert B Aldrich Service Award, given in recognition of extraordinary service to the Directors Guild of America and to its membership.

Vince Gilligan was recognised for his TV drama Breaking Bad and Beth McCarthy-Miller was honoured in the comedy television category for 30 Rock.
