Last night marked the 66th annual Directors Guild of America Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, but none of today's daytime drama directors received a nomination. Why? Because the "Daytime Serials" category was integrated into the "Dramatic Series" category following a June 22, 2013 DGA National Board meeting that voted on rule changes, which forces daytime and primetime dramas to compete against internet distributed dramas such as "House of Cards," which essentially leaves daytime itself shut out from ever receiving a nomination as the dynamics of daytime is no where near the likes of 2013 nominees "Breaking Bad" (AMC), "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "Homeland" (Showtime), or even the aforementioned "House of Cards" (Netflix). "Bad" won the award for those wondering.
