Los Angeles - Steven Spielberg has extended his domination at the Directors Guild of America Awards.

Spielberg received a record 11th nomination for the Directors Guild top prize, the latest coming on Tuesday for his Civil War epic Lincoln. He has won the guild prize a record three times.

Also nominated were past winners Kathryn Bigelow for her Osama bin Laden thriller Zero Dark Thirty; Tom Hooper for his musical Les Miserables; and Ang Lee for his lost-at-sea story Life of Pi.

Rounding out the field is first-time nominee Ben Affleck for his Iran hostage crisis tale Argo.

Winners of the 65th annual Directors Guild awards will be announced on 2 February, with Kelsey Grammer as host.
