Three days after earning a feature film nomination for the Directors Guild of America Award for "Hugo," Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese is back in the guild's nomination circle.

Scorsese earned a nomination for outstanding directorial achievement in documentary Thursday for "George Harrison: Living in the Material World." It is his 10th DGA nomination; he won the feature film award five years ago for "The Departed."

Other documentary nominees are Joe Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky for "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory," Steve James for "The Interrupters," James Marsh for "Project Nim" and Richard Press for "Bill Cunningham New York." Press is the only first-time nominee among the five.

The awards will be handed out at a ceremony at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland on Jan. 28.
