I don't think you're ready for this jelly

Kathryn Bigelow just won the Directors Guild Award. This is pretty epic, I'm not gonna lie. No woman has ever taken home this honor before. Only 6 times since 1948 has the DGA winner not won Best Director at the Oscars. Only 11 times has the DGA winner not gone on to receive Best Picture. That's a 90% and 82% positive indicator that the DGA and the Academy Awards are on par with one another.

Another fun fact? Only 3 women have ever been nominated for Best Director and not a single one of them ever received the honor. This means that there is a good possibility that K.Big could be the first woman winner for Best Director. And though I don't feel a woman has ever been robbed of either of these honors, and despite the fact that I would give it to Tarantino, it would be a really awesome if she won.

On an unrelated sidenote- this woman is going to be 59 this year. She is seriously one smokin' hot silver fox.
