For David Nutter, 2015 was a year of triumph!

This victory capped a remarkable journey of recognition, as he previously received six DGA nominations for his work on shows like The Sopranos, Entourage, and The Pacific. Nutter's ability to captivate audiences with his storytelling and bring complex characters to life, has cemented his place as one of television's most respected directors.
DGA has always been my foundation, says David Nutter
"The DGA has always been my foundation, my shining light, my bulwark against the impediments that so often crop up in this industry," David Nutter said. Sharing his excitement with Variety, Nutter said, "This is really a career pinnacle of sorts for me and validates what I have been doing to such a tremendous degree. Combined with the great support of my family, and my friends, and my fellow crew members and creatives, I can’t think of anything more gratifying than to receive this commendation."
