At the Directors Guild of America, last night, it was Alfonso Cuatron and the movie Gravity that got top honors.

Katie Adler, a native San Franciscan, says "There are some really great movies out and it will be a tight race. Very exciting."

It is now looking like it will be a "tight three-way race to the Oscars," reports
