Martin Scorsese and Bill Condon are among the five moviemakers who will fight for this year's Directors Guild of America top prize.

The filmmakers, who shot The Departed and Dreamgirls, respectively, join Babel director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Stephen Frears (The Queen) and Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris--the husband-and-wife team behind Little Miss Sunshine--on the newly announced shortlist.

The winner of the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2006 will be announced at the organization’s 59th Annual Awards Dinner on Feb. 3.

Of the 58 times the DGA Award has been handed out, only six winners did not go on to pick up the Best Director Oscar.
