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.”
