On the comedy side, Emmy winner Lucia Aniello received yet another award for “Hacks,” this time for the episode “There Is No Line,” for which she won the DGA Award. Aniello and “Hacks” knocked over “Ted Lasso,” which received three of the category’s five DGA Award nominations, as well as an episode called “The White Lotus” (which somehow landed in the comedy field there). This was Aniello’s first nomination for a DGA Award.

Jenkins triumphed against two episodes of Hulu’s “Dopesick,” as well as episodes of “Mare of Easttown,” “Station Eleven,” and other shows.
