Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky (pictured) is one of the five nominees for the Directors Guild of America award for outstanding achievement in feature film, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Other nominees, announced Monday morning, are David Fincher for The Social Network; Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech; Christopher Nolan for Inception; and David O. Russell for The Fighter.
Black Swan stars Natalie Portman (pictured with Aronofsky) and Mila Kunis as rival ballerinas who at one point become lovers.
Another movie with lesbian content, Lisa Cholodenko’s family story The Kids Are All Right, did not make the DGA cut, along with several other acclaimed films, such as Joel and Ethan Coen’s True Grit.
The DGA feature film award is considered a reliable predictor of the Oscar for best director. It and other DGA awards, in various television categories, will be presented January 29 in Los Angeles.
