'Slumdog' notches top honors from Hollywood directors
"Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle received top honors from the Director's Guild of America (DGA) late Saturday, the most recent in a spate of Hollywood awards ahead of this month's Oscars ceremony, AFP reported.
Boyle, 52, received top directing honors for his Mumbai-set love story about a contestant on India's version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"at last month's Golden Globes award.
"Slumdog" has received 10 Oscar nominations ahead of the February 22 Academy Awards ceremony.
The DGA award further notches the rags-to-riches movie's frontrunner status for the Oscars awards.
In January, the film won the top prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and also scooped up industry honors at the Producers Guild of America Awards.
