    I really like this category. We’ve seen in past years that sometimes the Academy goes their own way here and picks the director who’s not the obvious frontrunner show in drama series.

    My personal pick is Neil Marshall, I think “The Watchers Of The Wall” is the most visually impressive episode of the bunch, and has that big budget movie-like feeling. I’m just following my gut here, but I can see an upset in the likes of Dexter and House in the past years.

    What do you think?

    I would like Vince Gilligan to win, but it seems like the tracking shot from True Detective will give this to Fukunaga. And the fact that he directed all 8 episodes.

    Fukunaga should win.  Gilligan might.  Dark Horse is Van Patten considering he pulled out a surprise win before.

    I still wish Michelle Maclaren was nomintaed again for Tohijallee since she so deserved to win before but in her absence I would love to Vince up there although I got a feeling he will be on stage again when the show wins

    It’s a shame McLaren was snubbed, this year deserved the nomination even more than last year, she and Rian Johnson deserved. Not that “Felina” wasn’t a outstanding directorial effort, but I thought “To’hajilee” and “Ozymandias” were more impressive.

    Lots of showy directing in this category but the tracking shot is hard to deny for True Detective

    Interesting note, Drama Series and Directing have not lined up since 2007 when The Sopranos won both categories. I’m hoping Vince Gilligan can win this since it would be a real shame if Breaking Bad never won the category.

    All I know for sure is that if they had substituted Downton Abbey for Ozymandias, this might have been the single greatest drama directing lineup of all time.

     Your opinion sounds as if you were consenting it to be a fact.

    First of all, opinions are meant to be expressed and support a view. But since this post is for discussions and arguing one’s opinion, I will tell you something friend.

    I HIGHLY support your claim that “Ozymandias” is a GREAT episode (sorry, but I’m letting my love for Breaking Bad come over me) and needs to be nominated for a Directing nod (to pair it up with that writing nod!)

    But, the nominees deserve EVERYTHING. Downton Abbey‘s nomination is well-worth, but I thought their “Episode 8” was way better.

    Game of Thrones submitted the right episode and got themselves the nomination. Boardwalk Empire is no suprise. And House of Cards and True Detectives are too EXCELLENT. 

    Remember, EVERY awards (except for fan-voted) is based on opinion (I got it on a CBS-televised show in the 90’s). And trust me, this saying is true all through the way.

    If True Detective doesn’t win this category, they aren’t winning anything.

    This should be Fukinaga’s trophy, and he absolutely deserves it. I think the only other option is Gilligan, but that would only be because he is overdue, not because it is the best directed episode of the year.

    I think  they will throw Gilligan a bone and give him his due. But ye, Fukinaga is the favorite.
