DGA announces doc, TV, commercial noms

Although Ari Folman’s “Waltz With Bashir” did not make the shortlist of 15 films under consideration for the best documentary Oscar, it is among the nominees for the DGA’s doc award, announced Friday.

“Waltz” will compete with Gonzalo Arijon’s “Stranded: I’ve Come From a Plane that Crashed on the Mountains,” in which survivors of a 1972 Andes plane crash tell their story; Elizabeth Farnsworth and Patricio Lanfranco’s “The Judge and the General,” a look back at the investigation into the regime of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet; Peter Gilbert & Stevie James’ “At the Death House Door,” an examination of the wrongful conviction of a Texas man executed for murder; and James Marsh’s “Man on Wire,” a study of tight-rope walker Philippe Petit.

All the nominees are first-time DGA nominees, with the exception of Gilbert (who won the DGA’s doc award in 1998 for “Vietnam: Long Time Coming” and was nominated for children’s programming in 2003 for “A Time for Dancing”) and James (who won the DGA doc award in 1994 for “Hoop Dreams”).

Of the five films, “Death House” and “Man on Wire” are the only ones under consideration for the best documentary Oscar.

The DGA also announced nominees for TV and commercials as it readies for its annual awards dinner, to be held Jan. 31 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City.

David Fincher, who received a DGA film nomination Thursday for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” followed up with a second nomination in the commercials category for Nike, Apple and Stand Up for Cancer spots.

Paris Barclay scored nominations in both dramatic series for an episode of HBO’s “In Treatment” and comedy series for an episode of Showtime’s “Weeds.” He’s received seven previous nominations and took home the dramatic series award in 1998 for an episode of “NYPD Blue.”

“Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner earned a drama series nomination, his first DGA nom, for an episode of the AMC series, which also was just the second TV episode he has directed in his career.

In addition to Barclay and Weiner, the drama series nominees are Dan Attias for “The Wire,” Jack Bender for “Lost” and Alan Taylor for “Mad Men.”

In the comedy series category, Barclay’s fellow nominees are Julian Farino, “Entourage”; Paul Feig, “The Office”; Beth McCarthy-Miller, “30 Rock”; and Don Scardino, “30 Rock.”

Betram Van Munster, who won the reality program award last year for “The Amazing Race,” was nominated again this year for that program along with Tony Croll, “America’s Next Top Model”; Scott Messick, “Pros vs. Joes”; J. Rupert Thompson, “Estate of Panic”; and Kent Weed, “I Survived a Japanese Game Show.”

Nominated for TV movies/miniseries are: Bob Balaban, “Bernard and Doris”; Tom Hooper, “John Adams”; Kenny Leon, “A Raisin in the Sun”; Jay Roach, “Recount”; and Mikael Salomon, “The Andromeda Strain.”
