Congrats to “Mad Men’s” Lesli Linka Glatter and “Modern Family’s” Jason Winer

Leslielinkaglatter DGA voters were as impressed with the “Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency” seg of “Mad Men’s” third season as we were. Lesli Linka Glatter (pictured left) won the DGA kudo for primetime drama for the seg that will go down in TV history as “the one where a guy gets his foot cut off.” Great seg, and a much deserved honor for Glatter, who always brings a little extra something to the shows she works on. (She also directed the second episode of “Mad Men’s” third season, “Love Among the Ruins.”)

On the half-hour side, the DGA recognized the sublime work of Jason Winer on the pilot of ABC’s “Modern Family.” This is a good thing.

Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen and other thesps from the show were singing Winer’s praises last week during the NATPE sesh on “Modern Family.” He’s directed half of the show’s segs to to date. By all accounts, Winer is a budding superstar.

Congrats to both.Jasonwinerdga
