DGA Nominations For TV Unveiled

The 70th annual DGA Awards have released their nominations for television and there is a mix of new and veteran favorites that are competing for top honors.

Before we get to the full list I would like to point out that it’s a good year for women in the top categories, as they took three of the five comedy slots and one — Reed Morano’s first DGA nom — for Dramatic Series. At least the ladies are getting proper representation somewhere. Here is what the DGA had to say about their crop of nominees:

“Directors are driving the push to more distinctive television, eye-catching commercials and powerful documentaries. From 30-second spots to multi-hour mini-series, the nominees across these nine categories are leading that charge. We are proud to honor the tremendous range of excellence found in the projects nominated today. Congratulations to all of the nominees.”

The DGA will announce the nominees for film later today and awards will be given out on February 3. Here is the list of nominees:
