The Directors Guild has announced this year’s nominations for its annual award, and I’m delighted to report that Tim Van Patten has been nominated for his direction of our first episode, “Winter Is Coming.”
Van Patten faces some tough competition, sharing the ballot with Michael Cuesta (HOMELAND), Vince Gilligan (BREAKING BAD), Patty Jenkins (THE KILLING), and Michael Waxman (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS), but I’ll be pulling for him… to win the award, and to come back and direct some more episodes for us in future (though BOARDWALK EMPIRE is keeping him plenty busy).
With this DGA nomination, and the SAG and WGA nominations previously reported here, it means that GAME OF THRONES has been recognized by all three of the major Hollywood guilds.
Pretty damn cool.
