Half is a much more equal percentage than zero, no? Four women were nominated for five DGA awards in episodic television Wednesday morning, marking a giant step up from the film side of things where zero women made the cut — including “Selma” director Ava Duverney, who many expected to earn a slot.
Jodie Foster earned nominations for directing episodes of both “Orange is the New Black” and “House of Cards,” while “Homeland” dominated the drama category with two of the five nominations. Other big names to land nominations include Cary Joji Fukunaga for “True Detective,” Louis C.K. for “Louie,” Mike Judge for “Silicon Valley” and Jill Soloway for “Transparent.”
Nominees for the TV Movie and Miniseries category included Lisa Cholodenko for “Olive Kitteridge” and Ryan Murphy for “The Normal Heart.” Some surprise nominees snuck in as well — including Rob Ashford and Glenn Weiss for “Peter Pan Live!” — but “Fargo” was nowhere to be found. While “True Detective” was clearly labeled a Drama Series by the DGA, its fellow miniseries was absent from the slate altogether. (Perhaps this will help dull the pain for HBO, who lost the head-to-head matchup with “Fargo” at the Golden Globes last weekend.)
