New Hampshire's Mark Constance and team wins DGA Award for "Olive Kitteridge"

[Congratulations to New Hampshire's Mark Constance and the director's team from "Olive Kitteridge" on their DGA Award! Mark sent along this update:]
Mark and Bethany Constance had a successful journey to the Director’s Guild Award Ceremony in Los Angeles on February 7, 2015 as the Mini-Series “Olive Kitteridge” was awarded the DGA Award for it’s Director and her directing team. This was the third time Constance had been part of the nominated Director’s team and he was happy to finally receive the award: “It’s definitely vindication for many years of hard work. We’ve come up short a couple of times but I’m forever grateful to have worked with three incredible directors in Lisa Cholodenko, Spike Jonze and Paul Greengrass and to be part of these three projects over my career. Although I’ve worked in this business for many years it’s pretty surreal to be standing on the stage looking out at the audience and see Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, Richard Linklater, Barbara Streisand, Bradley Cooper, Wes Anderson, Bill Murray and many others clapping and looking back up at you. This is a huge event for members of the DGA as it’s voted on by all your peers; the directors, assistant directors and production managers in our Guild. We were presented our award by Katey Sagal and Bethany and I are huge fans of Sons Of Anarchy so that was the cherry on top for us!!!”
