It's raining awards shows in Hollywood right now, and the latest organization to bestow honors on televisions shows is the Directors Guild of America, which announced the nominations for its 60th Annual DGA Awards today.

Leading the way were dramas Lost and The Sopranos, and the comedy 30 Rock, which all scored a pair of nominations each.

For Lost, Jack Bender was selected for the third-season finale "Through the Looking Glass," and Eric Laneuville was recognized for "The Brig." David Chase and Tim Van Patten were nominated for The Sopranos episodes "Made in America" and "Sopranos Home Movies," respectively. 30 Rock directors Beth McCarthy-Miller and Michael Engler were nominated for "Somebody to Love" and "Rosemary's Baby," respectively.

The final drama nod went to Alan Taylor for the Mad Men episode "When Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." On the comedy side, veteran director Barry Sonnenfeld was singled out for helming the Pushing Daisies pilot appropriately titled "Pie-lette." The remaining two comedy nominations went to David Nutter (Entourage, "The Resurrection") and David Grossman (Desperate Housewives, "Something's Coming").

For the full list of nominees, which includes the directing awards for daytime serials, reality programs, musical or variety shows, and movies for television or miniseries, head over to the official DGA Web site.

The awards will be handed out on January 26 in Los Angeles.

Through the Looking Glass and The Brig were indeed 2 of the best episodes of Season 3 of Lost. Much deserved. Also bravo for Pushing Daisies.
