Alfonso Cuaron has won the Directors Guild of America’s award for directorial achievement for the film about space survival starring Sandra Bullock.

Last weekend, ”Gravity” and ”12 Years a Slave” tied for the Producers Guild’s best picture prize.

Cuaron’s win last night, coupled with the PGA prize, would seem to put ”Gravity” in the driver’s seat for best picture heading into the Oscars March 2.

The DGA winner’s gone on to take the director Oscar all but seven times in 65 years.

One of those exceptions was last year, when Ben Affleck took it for ”Argo” after not being nominated by the Motion Picture Academy.

”Argo” did wind up winning the Academy Award.
