In the dramatic television series category, Nicole Kassell won the DGA Award for helming the pilot of HBO’s “Watchmen.” As previously reported, the first episode, titled “It’s Summer and We’re Running Out of Ice,” recreated the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and established the acclaimed show as set in an alternate-reality version of Tulsa.

HBO has been an Emmy juggernaut for so long that it might be surprising to learn only one lead actor has ever won multiple times for a series on the premium network: James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”).
