One thought on “2007 DGA Television Nominees

  1. This is the last I have to see of The Sopranos, right? And it’s hard to imagine the half-hour shows standing up next to the luscious visuals in the Pie-lette.

    If I had a bazillion dollars, I’d make a half-decent miniseries and roll around in all the Emmys, Golden Globes, etc., I’d win because there just wouldn’t be any reasonable compeition to stop me. Should they even have those categories anymore?
