Directors Guild Awards 2015 – Television and Documentary Nominations

The nominees have been unveiled for the Directors Guild Awards for Outstanding Direction in Television, Commercials and Documentary Film. These are the companion nominations to the Film nods that came out on Tuesday. Of course, these nominations were actually revealed yesterday, but because I’m given to flights of intemperate idiocy, I completely overlooked the press release in my feed. So yeah, day late, but hopefully not a dollar short. After all, there are some pretty stellar nominees in this list.

The nominees include double nods for Homeland, and competitive nominations for Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Normal Heart, Peter Pan Live! and a personal favorite of mine, The Quest. Documentary nominations include 87th Oscar nominees Citizenfour, Finding Vivian Maier and Virunga.

And those are just a few of the nominees! Check out the full list of TV and documentary film nominees below:
