Alfonso Cuarón cemented his status as favourite ahead of the Oscars with a win at the Director's Guild Of America Awards.

The Mexican filmmaker took home the biggest prize of the night for his black-and-white, Spanish-language epic 'Roma', adding to the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards he has already won for the movie.

The DGAs are seen as a reliable barometer ahead of the Oscars, at which Cuarón is nominated for best director.

Cuarón won the outstanding directorial achievement in a feature film at the DGA Awards in Los Angeles ahead of Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for 'A Star Is Born', Peter Farrelly for 'Green Book', Spike Lee for 'BlacKkKlansman' and Adam McKay for 'Vice'.
