DGA Emmy Nominees Reception 2013

Emmy Directing Nominees Reception 2013

September 18, 2013 A DGA Special Event

On September 18, the DGA hosted its annual reception for the directing category nominees of this year’s Primetime Emmy® Awards at Guild Headquarters in Los Angeles.

“I think we can all agree it’s a fact – this is truly a golden age of television,” said DGA President Paris Barclay in his welcome to the audience. “The work of these women and men has helped propel television back into its cultural position as a vibrant art form that spurs conversation and brings audiences together in a communal experience – even if, these days, the watercooler lives on Twitter.

“The work of this year’s nominees is stylish, technically astute, and often slyly humorous. Some of the work is big and bold, while other moments are so full of tension and stillness that the audience finds itself holding its collective breath. All of it is outstanding and absolutely worthy of recognition. The Directors Guild is proud to be a part of this annual celebration, and to have this opportunity to salute these champions.”

Barclay then turned the floor over to Bruce Rosenblum, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) who congratulated the nominees and then introduced ATAS Director Peer Group Governors Lee Miller and Gail Mancuso, who joined Barclay in presenting the official 65th Annual Emmy® Award Nomination Certificates to the attending director nominees.
