Directors Guild TV Nominees: “Severance” Gets 2 Nods, “Maisel,” “Lotus” in the Mix


The DGA nominations for television have been announced. They’re a little weird.

In drama, two of the five slots went to “Severance” on AppleTV. The other three were “Ozark,” “Euphoria,” and “Better Call Saul.” Nothing for “The Crown.” And nothing for broadcast TV.

In comedy, the shows were The Bear, Barry, White Lotus, Mrs. Maisel, and Wednesday. Again, nothing for broadcast, not even Abbott Elementary.

Full list coming…
