Neal Preston/Warner Bros.

Today, the Directors Guild of America announced the nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film and Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Film Director in 2018. The highly selective nominations list includes a double mention for Bradley Cooper, who made his directorial debut with the Warner Bros.' drama A Star Is Born.

First Man's Damien Chazelle, Crazy Rich Asians' Jon M. Chu, Black Panther's Ryan Coogler, If Beale Street Could Talk's Barry Jenkins, A Quiet Place's John Krasinski, The Favourite's Yorgos Lanthimos and Mary Poppins Returns' Rob Marshall were snubbed by the guild. Not a single woman was nominated, and last year, Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig was the lone female contender.

Winners will be revealed Feb. 2 at the DGA Awards ceremony.
