Longtime readers of this blog know by now that I have a complete lack of self-consciousness about self-promotion (a quality, I hasten to add, that can almost always be found in a show-biz kid). So it is with no humility whatsoever that I announce that the Directors Guild of America (or rather its members) have nominated me as Best Director of a Mini-Series for my work on “Madoff”, which aired last spring on ABC. Click on this to read the Variety article. I would appreciate you sending good thoughts and vibes into the ether as I’m up against two HBO movies and two live musical events, all of which are stiff competition. The hell with it. It’s great to be recognized by one’s peers and I’m deeply thankful to mine.
