Film-maker Peter Jackson has scooped the top DIRECTORS GUILD AWARD (DGA) for his Lord Of The Rings trilogy, boosting his hopes of an OSCAR win.

Although Jackson is the first director ever to be nominated for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film prize three years in a row, his work on final chapter THE RETURN OF THE KING marks the first time he has won the prestigious award.

Jackson has already collected Best Director at the Golden GlobeS and the movie won Best Drama there - and Return Of The King goes into this month's (29FEB04) Academy Awards with a staggering 11 nominations.

Mike Nichols was a double winner at the DGAs - he won the Best TV Movie Direction for Angels in America and was honoured with the 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award.
