‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Grab Directors Guild Award Nominations

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has nabbed no less than three nominations for the Directors Guild Awards.

Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” broke through as new comedy and drama series recognized by the guild.

Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Errol Morris, Barry Levinson, Kyra Sedgwick, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, and George C. Wolfe are among the notable nominees for the DGA kudos in various scripted, reality and documentary categories.

The DGA’s comedy series race included women in three of the five slots. Reed Morano, the reigning Emmy drama series directing champ for “Handmaid’s Tale,” is a contender for drama series.

The spectacle served up on “Game of Thrones” once again impressed DGA voters. The mega-budget drama series landed three of the five slots in the drama series category. Jeremy Podeswa is up for “The Dragon and the Wolf” episode of Season 7. Matt Shakman is up for “The Spoils of War,” and Alan Taylor is nommed for “Beyond the Wall.”

Joining the “Thrones” trio and Morano are brothers Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer for “The Gate” episode of “Stranger Things.” The Duffers were nommed last year for the “Stranger Things” pilot.

On the comedy series side, “Mrs. Maisel” creator/executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino scored her first DGA nom for helming the pilot of the dramedy. “Mrs. Maisel” claimed the wins at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards for comedy series and lead comedy actress for star Rachel Brosnahan.

Netflix’s “Master of None” took two noms, for series star Ansari’s directing work on “The Thief” episode of Season 2. Melina Matsoukas is up for the “Thanksgiving” episode. HBO’s “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” rounded out the category. Beth McCarthy-Miller earned her 12th career DGA nom, for the “Chicklet” episode of “Veep.” Mike Judge bagged his fourth nom, for the “Server Error” episode of “Silicon Valley.”

In the DGA’s movies and miniseries heat, Scott Frank is a contender for Netflix’s “Godless.” Levinson is up for HBO’s “The Wizard of Lies.” Jean-Marc Vallee was recognized for HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” for which he won the limited-series director Emmy in September. Sedgwick picked up her first DGA nom, for Lifetime’s “Story of a Girl” while theater veteran Wolfe is nommed for directing Oprah Winfrey in HBO’s “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

In the variety/news/talk specials field, Schumer is a nominee for helming her Netflix program “The Leather Special.” Burns and Novick are contenders for documentary for PBS’ “The Vietnam War,” along with veteran filmmaker Morris for Netflix’s “Wormwood.”
