BMW Partners with the Directors Guild of America in Support of the 68th Annual Directors Guild Awards. 

All-New BMW M2 Coupe and All-New BMW 7 Series Featured on the Red Carpet at One of the Signature Events of Hollywood’s Awards Season. 

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – February 8, 2016… For the third consecutive year, BMW proudly supported the Directors Guild of America at the organization’s 68th Annual DGA Awards Ceremony. The awards, which celebrate directorial excellence in feature film and television, took place on February 6, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. 
Actor Jane Lynch presided over the ceremony which also featured two of BMW’s newest stars – the all-new BMW M2 Coupe and all-new BMW 7 Series – on the red carpet alongside Hollywood’s biggest directors and stars including Angela Basset, Abigail Breslin, Rachel McAdams, Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro González Iñárritu.
As the newest member of BMW M family, the BMW M2 Coupe offers both full power on the racetrack as well as top performance on the street. The BMW 7 Series is the brand’s flagship, setting new benchmarks in lightweight design, driving dynamics, comfort, intelligent connectivity and intuitive operation, while delivering the highest level of driving refinement in the premium class.
The DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film has traditionally been a near perfect barometer for the Best Director Academy Award. Only seven times since the DGA Award's inception has the DGA Award winner not won the Academy Award.
