The comedies received double nominations in the comedy category when the Director's Guild of America's television and commercial nominations were announced Tuesday. The final slot went to NBC's "30 Rock."
Cable dominated in the drama field, with individual episodes of "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "Homeland" (Showtime), "The Killing" (AMC), "Breaking Bad" (AMC) and "Friday Night Lights" (101 Network) in the running.
Competition-based shows governed the reality front. NBC's "The Biggest Loser" and "Fear Factor" are up against CBS' "The Amazing Race," Fox's "Master Chef" and Food Network's "The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs."
In the daytime serials category, ABC's "All My Children," which ended its run in September after a 41-year run, earned two nominations, as did the network's other sudser "General Hospital." They'll compete against ABC's other canceled soap, "One Life To Live" -- which ends its run this week to make way for the lifestyle show "The Revolution" -- and CBS' "The Young and the Restless," and "The Bold and the Beautiful."
The winners will be announced at the 64th Annual DGA Awards Dinner on Jan. 28 in Los Angeles.
Here's a full list of DGA nominees.
