Davis Guggenheim on DGA Nom: 'I Am Beyond Excited'
Davis Guggenheim had $50 million success with An Inconvenient Truth, but he's never had an honor like the DGA's nom for Waiting for 'Superman.'
"I am beyond excited," says Guggenheim. "This is my first nomination from the Directors Guild, and to be recognized by my peers, other filmmakers in my guild, is wonderful. It is especially meaningful because this kind of attention means more people will be exposed to the stories of Anthony, Bianca, Emily, Francisco and Daisy -- who like millions of others, just want a chance at a great education.”
It is also meaningful because he's a frontrunner for the doc Oscar, and this is apt to change a few ballots being filled out at this moment.
