During tonight's 65th Annual DGA Awards Dinner, held at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles, "One Life to Live's" Jill Mitwell beat out "General Hospital's" Larry Carpenter, Scott McKinsey and William Ludel and "Days of our Live's" director Albert Alarr in the category of Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Daytime Serials. Mitwell won for her direction of the episode "Between Heaven and Hell," which aired during "OLTL's" final week on television (week of January 9, 2012). Coincidently, the title of the episode is based on the fact that prior to its 43-year run on ABC, which began July 15, 1968, “One Life to Live” was initially titled “Between Heaven and Hell.”
