The 'Breaking Bad' actor earns one nod for directing an episode of his AMC drama series and another for helming an episode of ABC's comedy 'Modern Family'.

Directors Guild of America has announced the TV nominees for its annual awards, two days after unveiling the nominations in movie field. Actor/director Bryan Cranston, who's known for his portrayal of meth dealer Walter White on "Breaking Bad", lands in both Dramatic Series and Comedy Series categories.

He is joined in the race by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, Golden Globe-winning director David Fincher ("House of Cards"), Lesli Linka Glatter ("Homeland") and David Nutter ("Game of Thrones").

Cranston's second nomination comes from his work on critically-acclaimed sitcom "Modern Family". He's fighting off Gail Mancuso who also directed the ABC comedy, Mark Cendrowski and Anthony Rich who helmed "The Big Bang Theory", as well as Beth McCarthy-Miller who directed "30 Rock".

In Movies for Television and Miniseries category, all the nominations go to TV movies and one holiday special. Steven Soderbergh is nominated for his work on "Behind the Candelabra", Stephen Frears secures a spot for directing "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight", David Mamet is recognized for directing "Phil Spector", Beth McCarthy-Miller and Rob Ashford share the honor for their work on "The Sound of Music Live!", and Nelson McCormick is nominated for directing "Killing Kennedy".
