Dunham picked up Saturday to get directing the particular pilot on the show, which will works with the life on the number of ladies inside their 20s.
"It is definitely these kinds of a fantastic recognize to get inside the company of the people during this room, who've made me would like to repeat this by using my life," Dunham said.
Malik Bendjelloul won that documentary give for "Sugar Man," his study from the luck connected with vitally acclaimed however imprecise 1970s singer-songwriter Rodriquez. The film likewise is nominated with regard to greatest documentary with the Feb. twenty four Academy Awards.
Among alternative early TV winners:
Musical variety: Glenn Weiss, "The 66th Annual Tony Awards."
Daytime serial: Jill Mitwell, "One Life to Live."

The Directors Guild is in continuing Hollywood's bizarre awards season, which could culminate having a major Oscar acquire pertaining to Ben Affleck's "Argo." The guild's reward regarding finest director normally is a finalized blessing with the motion picture that will continues that will earn best-picture plus director at the Academy Awards.
Affleck can proceed simply one-for-two along at the Oscars, though. He's upwards for the picture dignity along at the Directors Guild, and "Argo" can be seeking similar to the best-picture most desired in the Oscars. But the actual director's branch with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and also Sciences avoided the pup along with numerous various other essential filmmakers pertaining to a great Oscar pointing slot.
The guild along with Oscar directing lineups commonly go with closely, nonetheless they need tiny with widespread this season, together with merely Steven Spielberg to get "Lincoln" and Ang Lee pertaining to "Life of Pi" nominated at the two shows.
Along using them plus Affleck, this guild nominated Kathryn Bigelow with regard to "Zero Dark Thirty" along with Tom Hooper for "Les Miserables." At that Oscars, Spielberg in addition to Lee are generally joined up with with that pointing classification by means of Michael Haneke pertaining to "Amour," David O. Russell pertaining to "Silver Linings Playbook" and Benh Zeitlin for "Beasts in the Southern Wild."
Director Norman Jewison, the particular guild's this year lifetime-achievement prize winner, brought to you Bigelow along with the girl nomination plaque as well as noted the incongruity belonging to the Oscar best-picture field, which has nine nominees, though you will discover simply all 5 pointing slots.
"So apparently, there are four movies which are directed simply by themselves," Jewison said.
With 12 Oscar nominations, Spielberg's Civil War saga initially appeared such as the Oscar favourite about this sort of different probable favorites when "Argo," ''Les Miserables" as well as "Zero Dark Thirty," given that motion pictures usually have little possibility that you'll succeeding greatest snapshot should they aren't nominated for ideal director. Only several shows possess completed it inside 84 years, most recently 1989's best-picture champ "Driving Miss Daisy," which in turn failed to bring in a new directing nomination for Bruce Beresford.
But Affleck's "Argo," where he / she also stars being a CIA operative which hatches a strong will recovery half a dozen Americans throughout the hostage turmoil around Iran, has swept upward the many major honours because Oscar nominations. "Argo" picked up very best play along with director in the Golden Globes and also top movie influences from the Screen Actors Guild as well as the Producers Guild associated with America.
Many from the similar motion picture professionals exactly who vote inside guild ribbons in addition cast ballots to the Oscars. If Affleck wins in the Directors Guild awards, will probably be a solid hint which "Argo" features the indoors trail for your best-picture Oscar.
Affleck sometimes have a little bit of newcomer's borders during that guild, where by they've the sole first-time nominee. Spielberg has won this guild reward accurate documentation several times, with regard to "The Color Purple," ''Schindler's List" along with "Saving Private Ryan." Lee provides claimed twice, pertaining to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" plus "Brokeback Mountain," whilst Bigelow earned 36 months past regarding "The Hurt Locker" plus Hooper gained 24 months in the past to get "The King's Speech."
A gain to get Affleck will nick this guild's record for a strong outlook for any final directing beneficiary with the Oscars. Only six occasions inside the 64-year record from the guild honours features the particular safe bet right now there failed to comply with in place having an Oscar. It would often be No. seven in the event Affleck victories Saturday, considering he has been not necessarily upwards to get best overseer for the Oscars.
Peer respect might play in Affleck's favor for the Oscars. The acting branch in particular, the most important block with the particular academy's 5,900 members, might genuinely toss its bodyweight at the rear of "Argo" as a consequence of Affleck's directing snub. Actors adore it when certainly one of their unique movements proper prosperous leading career, along with Affleck who's not usually gained raves to get his stunning chops also provides considered one of his / her very best performances with "Argo."
Affleck has experienced not any traction around behaving honors this specific season, plus they've joked that no person viewed as them a new snub any time he or she had not been nominated for best actor. So some sort of best-picture vote to get "Argo" may possibly end up being seen creating perfect his omission from the directing lineup in addition to acknowledging just what exactly a double-threat talent he's grow to be facing along with at the rear of the particular camera.
A best-picture winning prize also would send Affleck household by using an Oscar. The merit would head over to that manufacturers associated with "Argo": George Clooney, Grant Heslov and also Affleck.
But it is not because while Affleck has for no reason become his or her thanks from Hollywood ribbons before. He and also Matt Damon jump-started his or her occupations by using 1997's "Good Will Hunting," that they propagated a screenplay Oscar.
