Awards Schedule Art 2014

June 25, 2014

Los Angeles — The DGA today announced the schedule of key dates for the 67th Annual DGA Awards, which will take place on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles and will be chaired by DGA President Paris Barclay. 

Feature Film nominees will be announced on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 and Television, Commercial, and Documentary nominees will be announced on Wednesday, January 14, 2015. 

DGA members will be able to vote online between December 3, 2014 – January 12, 2015 for Feature Film Nominations; between December 15, 2014 – January 12, 2015 for Television Nominations in five categories; and between January 13, 2015 – February 6, 2015 for the Feature Film Award. All voting will continue to take place online. The DGA will also continue to allow Feature Film screeners to be distributed to members for Awards consideration. The complete schedule of key dates is included below.   

BMW – Exclusive Automotive Sponsor

BMW will return as the Exclusive Automotive Sponsor of the 67th Annual DGA Awards. 

“We’re pleased to welcome BMW back for the second year as the Exclusive Automotive Sponsor of the DGA Awards,” said Barclay.  “Last year’s partnership with BMW helped us create an elegant evening celebrating the best directing of the year.  We look forward to working together with the creators of the ‘Ultimate Driving Machine’ to maintain our role as the ultimate in awards for directorial achievement.”

Category Eligibility

The rules governing DGA Awards category submissions have been modified to provide additional clarity and consistency regarding category submissions for scripted television.

Directors who wish to submit an episode of scripted television for DGA Awards consideration will only be allowed to submit in the same category for which they were hired to direct.  For instance, if a program is classified as a mini-series under its DGA agreement, the director must submit his or her episode for consideration in the Movies for Television and Mini-Series category.  Similarly, if a director is hired to direct an episode of a dramatic series, he or she must submit the episode for consideration in the Dramatic Series category.

The revised submission rules will be implemented for the upcoming 67th Annual DGA Awards.
