    As I was looking through the Directing ballot last night I noticed a few names on the ballot that surprised me. What are the chances that a “big name” gets in based on name recognition. Some of the names are:

    Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series:
    Angie Tribeca – “Pilot” by Steve Carell
    House of Lies – “Johari Window” by Don Cheadle
    Love – “Party in the Hills” by John Slattery
    Mike & Molly – “Curse of the Bambino” by Melissa McCarthy
    Telenovela – “The Hurricane” by Eva Longoria

    Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series:
    The Americans – “The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears” by Matthew Rhys
    Empire – “Tameness of a Wolf” by Paris Barclay
    Grey’s Anatomy – “My Next Life” by Chandra Wilson
    Grey’s Anatomy – “The Sound of Silence” by Denzel Washington
    House of Cards – “Chapter 49” by Robin Wright
    Madam Secretary – “The Show Must Go On” by Morgan Freeman
    Scandal – “Pencils Down” by Regina King
    Vinyl – “Pilot” by Martin Scorsese
    Wayward Pines – “Where Paradise is Home” by M. Night Shyamalan

    In the limited series/movie category we have James Franco, in variety we have Steve Buscemi and in variety special Chris Rock and Beyonce.

    From all of the names above I suspect only Martin Scorsese will be nominated. What do you all think?

    I actually think both Robin Wright and Denzel Washington will make it into the Directors race. And both are totally deserving for fantastic episodes.

    Only Scorsese & Barclay has a real shot based off their name. It’s rare that actors get nominated for their directing work.

    No way Shyamalan gets nominated. Only Scorsese and Barclay stand a chance to be nominated from these imo. Maybe Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman but those are big maybes.

    Scorsese first, and then the outside chance of Wright. It’s no shock if Barclay makes it in. Remember who he is and what he’s managed nods for in the past.

    If Scorsese gets in, it will be a pure name check which I could see happening but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I actually think Wright will get in here, as House of Cards has a real legit shot of getting back into directing with Boardwalk and the 6th slot opening up for it. Her episode will be the one the voters will check off because of the name recognition.

    Voters should not touch HOC, not even with a ten foot pole

    Remember these people when it comes time for DGA nominations. They love to nominate big-name actors and writers unlike the Emmys (Jason Alexander, Adam Arkin, Angela Bassett, Bryan Cranston, Edward James Olmos, Fred Savage, Matt Weiner). I guess when you get a small group of directors together, they get elitist. See also Ben Affleck’s snub at the Oscars. Big-name directors are another story and you should be very afraid of Martin Scorsese and Paris Barclay. Robin Wright has some potential to cross over, being the show’s producing director now and the show itself theoretically being near the top of drama series.

    Paris Barclay isn’t getting in for Empire. The voters don’t care about Empire, didn’t last year teach you anything? If they loved Barclay that much he’d have gotten in for Sons of Anarchy or many of the other shows he’s directed for.

    He was the sole nomination for the fifth season of Glee. At least Empire got actress and costume nominations last year. Sons of Anarchy was never on the radar above the line.

    Empire only got 2 nominations last year when it was a hit. This year is getting 0.
