 The 11th annual Director's Guild of Canada awards were handed out in Toronto last night and Hogtown homeboy David Cronenberg swept the feature film awards. The awards, hosted by Se├ín Cullen, were live streamed online for the first time ever. Viewers of the 2012 DGC awards saw A Dangerous Method win all five awards for which the film was eligible, including Best Feature and Best Director. Maybe Brandon will clean up next year?
