The five filmmakers are competing for the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2012.

The winner will be announced Feb. 2.

"DGA members have chosen an incredibly rich and varied group of filmmakers to nominate for this year's Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film Award," DGA President Taylor Hackford said in a statement. "These directors represent the highest standard of film-making, and their films are a testament to artistic achievement, innovative storytelling and the passion that filmmakers share with their audiences.

"Being nominated by their peers is what makes this award particularly meaningful for directors, and I congratulate all of the nominees for their outstanding work."
