NEW YORK (AP) — Martin Scorsese isn't just nominated for a Directors Guild Award for "Hugo," but also for his documentary "George Harrison: Living in the Material World."

The other documentary nominees for the 64th annual Directors Guild Awards are Steve James for the Chicago anti-violence documentary "The Interrupters"; Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky for the West Memphis Three documentary "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory"; James Marsh for the chimpanzee rearing film "Project Nim"; and Richard Press for the fashion photographer documentary "Bill Cunningham New York."

The Directors Guild earlier this week nominated Scorsese, David Fincher, Michel Hazanavicius, Woody Allen and Alexander Payne for its top filmmaking honors.

The guild will announce its winners at a Jan. 28 dinner, with Kelsey Grammer as host.
