Quick note about DGA - O-Factor: "To the surprise of no one, Ang Lee was named filmmaker of the year this weekend at the Directors Guild of America awards banquet for his Brokeback Mountain. The win -- over competition including George Clooney's Good Night, and Good Luck and Paul Haggis' Crash -- means that anything short of Lee taking the best director Oscar would be a tremendous surprise. In the DGA's 57 year history, the guild has predicted the best director Oscar winner a stunning 51 times.

Of course, one of those rare exceptions included Lee, who won the DGA award in 2001 for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but Stephen Soderbergh took the Academy Award for Traffic. Don't look for a similar upset this year."
