The thing about the DGA, as as well as SAG, the WGA, AMPAS, etc, is that these organizations are like clubs... they don't like outsiders or people that really rock the boat...and if they rock the boat, then really rock it (think Quentin Tarantino's ominvorous approach to the media...plus he writes a lot his stuff). Spike Jonze didn't get nominated by the DGA for Being John Malkovich, but was nominated for an Oscar so you never know.

Jen, you're very right that the nominations of DGA and Oscar don't always match-up 100% , but they usually do about 80%. It's very rare for two or more of the slots to differ. That's for a very simple reason: the only people who can nominate DGA award finalists are members of the DGA and the only people who can vote on Oscar nominees for Best Director are Academy members who belong to the director's branch. While I have no actual figures, the crossover between these two groups is probably somewhere above 90%.
