'Homeland', 'Girls', 'American Horror Story' Among TV Nominees at 2013 DGA Awards


'Homeland' nabs two nominations in Dramatic Series category, 'Girls' competes with 'Big Bang Theory' in Comedy Series field, and 'AHS' is nominated in TV movie and miniseries category.

A day after announcing its movie nominations, the Directors Guild of America unveils its TV nominees. Coming as no surprise, "Homeland" scores two nods in Dramatic Series for the episodes directed by Michael Cuesta and Lesli Linka Glatter, facing off "Mad Men", "Breaking Bad" and "The Newsroom".

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston earns his first DGA nom this year, but not through the AMC series. Instead, he will be competing against Lena Dunham ("Girls") and Louis C.K. ("Louie") for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Comedy Series prize through his "Modern Family" directorial stint. Also vying for the same title are Mark Cendrowski ("The Big Bang Theory") and Beth McCarthy-Miller ("30 Rock").

"American Horror Story: Asylum" lands in Movies for Television and Mini-Series category, which has "Political Animals", "Hemingway & Gellhorn", "Hatfields & McCoys" and "Game Change" as the other contenders. "America's Next Top Model" and "MasterChef", meawhile, are among the nominees in reality programs.

Leading in term of number is daytime series "General Hospital" which scores three noms. Its rivals are long-running soap "Days of Our Lives" and "One Life to Live" which was canceled by ABC last year.

The 65th annual DGA Awards will announce the winners in TV, movie and commercial fields on Sunday, February 2 at a dinner hosted by Kelsey Grammer at Hollywood & Highland.
