Scorsese gets direction nomination

Martin Scorsese has been nominated for a second Directors Guild Award - for his documentary George Harrison: Living In The Material World.

The veteran movie maker won an nomination earlier this week for his latest motion picture Hugo.

The other documentary nominees for the 64th annual Directors Guild Awards are Steve James for the Chicago anti-violence documentary The Interrupters, Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky for the West Memphis Three documentary Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, James Marsh for the chimpanzee rearing film Project Nim, and Richard Press for the fashion photographer documentary Bill Cunningham New York.

The Directors Guild earlier this week nominated Scorsese, David Fincher, Michel Hazanavicius, Woody Allen and Alexander Payne for its top filmmaking honours.

The guild will announce its winners at a January 28 dinner, with Kelsey Grammer as host.
