Earlier this week, the Directors Guild of America announced their nominees for best documentary. They’ve previously announced the nominees for film and television. Two women were nominated out of the five nominees which also includes Kirby Dick’s Academy Award nominated film The Invisible War.

The most exciting of the nominations is Lauren Greenfield for The Queen of Versailles, one of my favorite documentaries of the year and one that has been inexplicably shut out of many award nominations. Alison Klayman is also nominated for Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry.

You can find a full list of the documentaries nominated at the link. The DGA Awards will be held in LA on February 2.
