LOS ANGELES -- Steven Spielberg has extended his domination at the Directors Guild of America Awards.

Spielberg padded the record he already held with an 11th nomination for the Directors Guild top prize, the latest coming 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 at a dinner Feb. 2, with Kelsey Grammer as host for the second year in a row.
