Cable leads DGA telefilm noms


Reflecting the shift of longform TV programming to cable, ABC was the only broadcast outlet to figure in five DGA Awards nominations for telefilms and miniseries announced Thursday.

Lloyd Kramer was nominated for directing ABC's "Oprah Winfrey Presents Mitch Albom's For One More Day." Other nominees in the category are Jon Avnet for "The Starter Wife" (USA Network), Jeremiah Chechik for "The Bronx Is Burning" (ESPN), Mikael Salomon for "The Company" (TNT) and Yves Simoneau for "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" (HBO).

The DGA also announced nominees in several other television and documentary categories. Winners will be announced Jan. 26 at the 60th annual DGA Awards gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City.
