LOS ANGELES (AP) -- ``Titanic'' director James Cameron was among five filmmakers nominated for top honors Monday by the Directors Guild of America.

The DGA also nominated Steven Spielberg for ``Amistad,'' James L. Brooks for ``As Good As it Gets,'' Curtis Hanson for ``L.A. Confidential'' and Gus Van Sant for ``Good Will Hunting.''

``Each may have a different style and work with different subjects, but all of them share the exceptional ability to create magical films,'' said Jack Shea, DGA president.

The winner of the DGA award also has taken the directing Oscar all but four times since the DGA prize was first presented in 1949.

The award will be presented in New York and Los Angeles on March 7.
