DGA TV nominations: Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, Louis C.K., Angela Bassett …

A slew of famous names from in front of the camera reaped bids from the Directors Guild of America for their helming of various TV programs in 2015. Amy Schumer is nominated for directing herself in an episode of "Inside Amy Schumer" while Chris Rock reaped a bid for his oversight of her stand-up special "Live From the Apollo." And Oscar nominees Angela Bassett and Paul Haggis number among those contending for their helming of telefilms "Whitney" and "Show Me a Hero" respectively. 

Series creators are represented on both the drama and comedy side of the ledger. Steven Soderbergh ("The Knick") and Matthew Weiner ("Mad Men") are up against directors of episodes of "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones" and "Homeland." And Louie C.K. ("Louie), Mike Judge ("Silcon Valley") and reigning champ Jill Soloway ("Transparent") vie against helmers of installments of "Modern Family" and "Veep."
