Searching for Sugar Man continues to rock up the award nominations…
Malik Bendjelloul’s film about 70-year-old Mexican American singer Rodriguez has received a DGA Award nomination for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentaries by the Directors Guild of America.
The film, which earned an Academy Award nomination last week, tells the story of the folk musician who became a huge star in South Africa while remaining a virtual unknown in the United States, even in his hometown of Detroit.
Searching for Sugar Man will compete against Kirby Dick’s The Invisible War, Lauren Greenfield’s The Queen of Versailles, Alison Klayman’s Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry and David Frances’ How to Survive a Plague.
Winners will be announced on February 2nd at the 65th annual DGA Awards Dinner in Hollywood, in a ceremony hosted by Kelsey Grammer.
