At the Directors Guild of America's 58th Annual Awards Dinner on Saturday in L.A., MJZ director Craig Gillespie stepped up to the podium to claim the 2005 commercials directing honor, besting three of his MJZ colleagues—Spike Jonze, Rocky Morton and Rupert Sanders, as well as last year's winner and four-time DGA nominee Noam Murro. The win follows Gillespie's third nomination and marks the first time an MJZ director has earned the prize. It caps off an award-winning run for Gillespie, who took home the commercials Emmy last September for Ameriquest's "Surprise Dinner," which along with sister spot "Mini Mart" and the Altoids "PeopleofPain" campaign, also earned multiple industry nods.
