It's shaping up to be a very busy awards season for Kirsten Dunst! On March 12, less than two weeks after she attended the SAG Awards, the actress stepped out for the 74th annual Directors Guild of America awards, which was hosted by Judd Apatow.

The star had good reason to celebrate at the show, as Jane Campion, the director of her recent flick The Power of the Dog, took home the win for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Theatrical Feature Film.

The Bring It On lead stepped out in a black velvet blazer that was cinched at the waist with a skinny black belt that featured a flower decoration. Underneath, she wore a pale blush dress and a pair of black slingback heels embellished with a crystal buckle.

The blonde beauty, who presented at the awards show, walked the carpet solo and alongside longtime love Jesse Plemons.

Dunst received her first Oscar nomination for her role in The Power of the Dog, a western drama that premiered this past fall.

"It’s so rare to be in a good movie that everyone likes — that’s lightning in a bottle. I know how special this time is," she shared with Vanity Fair, noting that the nomination for Best Supporting Actress will "open new doors" for her.

Funny enough, Plemons — whom she first met while working on Fargo — has a role in the movie as well, and he also received his first Oscar nomination.

Dunst noted that going to and from set with her other half helped her leave her character Rose behind when she was off the clock. "It’s not like I wanted to bring Rose home or live in Rose, but it does seep into your life until the movie is over, it does. It just — it has to," she explained. "I questioned myself more and I was way more insecure. I had him to come home to, and he totally understood everything I was talking about."

The day after the DGA Awards, Dunst attended the Critics Choice Awards with Plemons. Though she didn't win for her category, the flick earned four trophies, including Best Picture.
