Film and Television Directors

Advancement Prospects

Advancement for film directors often comes in the form of recognition from their peers, professional film organizations, and the media. Directors who work on well-received movies receive awards as well as further job offers. Probably the most glamorized trophy is the Academy Award: the Oscar. Oscars are awarded in more than 20 categories, including one for Best Achievement in Directing, and are given annually at a gala to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of those in the field. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gives Emmy Awards to television directors who direct exemplary work. Candidates for Oscars and Emmys are usually judged by peers.
