The Directors Guild Of America has announced the nominees for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement In Television And Commercials for 2010. THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Sally McDonald received a nod for December's stand-alone episode featuring Victor in his own version of A Christmas Carol, and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Michael Stich was recognized for October's "A Reason To Live: Part 1," which followed Stephanie and Brooke visiting various locales in Los Angeles before ending up at Skid Row.
"We are all thrilled for Michael and his team," says B&B Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley P. Bell. "This story is one of inspiration and hope. It was taped on the streets of Skid Row on the hottest day recorded in the history of the city. Even under these grueling conditions, Michael brought his best forward and the results have been magical."
Over at ABC, ONE LIFE TO LIVE picked up a pair of nominations for their "Starr X'd Lovers" episodes, and GENERAL HOSPITAL received one for their "Francofrenia" episode, taped on location at Los Angeles' Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA). The 63rd Annual DGA Awards will take place on Saturday, January 29, at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles, CA.
