Bryan Cranston & Beth McCarthy-Miller Dominate DGA Awards TV Nominations

Few were surprised when three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston last year landed multiple SAG nominations and won two awards: one for his starring role on AMC’s Breaking Bad and one as a cast member of Argo. But it was surprising to see the actor today emerge as the most nominated director in DGA Awards’ TV categories with two noms, one for the 5A season premiere of Breaking Bad and one for “The Old Man & The Tree” episode of Modern Family. Cranston landed his first DGA nom last year and went 2-for-2 today, landing nominations for everything he directed in 2013 — not bad for a side career. He will have some stiff competition in both the drama and comedy series categories, including on the drama side from his boss, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, nominated for Breaking Bad‘s series finale, and A-list film and TV directors David Fincher (House Of Cards), David Nutter (Game Of Thrones) and Lesli Linka Glater (Homeland).
