Publish date:

Martin Scorsese now has an Emmy to flank his Oscar.
The famed film director, who finally scored an Oscar for 2006's The Departed, grabbed TV's top honor for directing a drama, as he helmed the pilot of HBO's Atlantic City prohibition era series, Boardwalk Empire.
This was a category where cable was destined to win: HBO also had a nod for Jerry Podeswa on the Boardwalk Empire installment entitled "Anastasia"; Tim Van Patten for HBO's Game of Thrones' episode "Winter is Coming"; Neil Jordan for Showtime's The Borgias and its The Poisoned Chalice/The Assassin entry; and Patty Jenkins for the pilot of AMC's The Killing.
