Directors’ Guild Announces TV Noms

Sue Sylvester GleeAfter giving us their list of the big guys yesterday, the Directors’ Guild filled out the remaining nominations today with their top TV directors. For the most part, all the expected parties are present (Mad Men, Lost, Modern Family, and Glee season one – back when it was still fantastic), with a few surprises like the 30 Rock “Live Show” episode – really? Of course, it should come as no surprise that HBO once again dominates the list of nominees (they have a whole category to themselves) and AMC has a decent showing considering it only has a handful of programming out there.

Along with the already announced best feature nominations, these lucky directors will find out their fates at the 63rd Annual DGA Awards Dinner on Jan. 29 in Hollywood.
