We may not see them often, but the crew of our favorite soaps – directors, writers, producers and even camera operators – are some of the hardest working in the industry. Which is why they are recognized by their peers for their hard work every day. The Director’s Guild of America has announced the nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Television – and All My Children director Casey Childs is one of the nominees!

Casey was nominated for his work on episode # 9669. This is Casey’s third nomination (he was previously nominated in 2007 and 2001) for the DGA Awards.
