Seven are first-time nominees

First-time nominees dominated the Directors Guild of America selections for daytime serials and children’s programming, taking seven of the 10 nominations announced Wednesday.

Rookie honorees in the daytime category included Noel R. Maxam for “The Young and the Restless,” the only show to receive two nominations this year, along with Albert Alarr for ABC’s “Port Charles” and Herbert D. Stein for NBC’s “Days of Our Lives.”

Jill Mitwell, director of ABC’s “One Life to Live” received her fourth nomination in the daytime serials category, and Kathryn Foster was selected for the second time for CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” Mitwell won the category in 1993, and Foster won in 1996 with Mike Denny.
