CRYSTAL HITS A HOMER

Baseball has been very good to Billy Crystal. The television drama 61*, which recounts the home-run race between Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle, has earned Crystal a best director nod from the Directors Guild of America, reports The Associated Press. His competition in the television film category includes directors Robert Allan Ackerman for Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, Jon Avnet for Uprising, Frank Pierson for Conspiracy and Mark Rydell for James Dean.
