Will this year be the sixth time?

Freshman moviemaker Rob Marshall razzle-dazzled the Directors Guild of America with his musical “Chicago” last night, claiming the top honor and defeating directors Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski.
In the 55 years since the guild began presenting its top honor, the winner has gone on to receive the Academy Award for best director all but five times.
Marshall, 42, a Tony-winning Broadway director and choreographer, appeared as shaken as he was grateful after claiming the award. “This is something I didn’t quite expect,” he said.
Asked where he was going to place the trophy, a gold-plated disc about the size of a serving dish, Marshall replied: “I’m going to have to get another apartment in New York. It’s huge!”
