Ang Lee fails to get slice of Directors Guild's pie

TAIPEI--Taiwanese director Ang Lee has failed to win a Directors Guild of America (DGA) award, which was given to American actor-turned-director Ben Affleck, who was named outstanding director for his film “Argo.”

Affleck, a first-time nominee, took the DGA's Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for “Argo,” which is based on the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979, during the 65th awards ceremony in Los Angeles Saturday.

Lee had been nominated for his 3D epic film “Life of Pi,” which has become a worldwide box office success.

The film, adapted from Canadian novelist Yann Martel's best-selling 2001 novel of the same name, explores faith through tales of a shipwrecked boy adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.
