Hagmann, who won the DGA commercial award last year, was nominated for three ads he directed: "Stranger in the House" for McDonald's, "Right Moment" for the Latter-day Saints and "Skates" for IBM.

Levine, who won for his work in 1981, was nominated for "Good Samaritans" for the Latter-day Saints and "Radio Telescope" for Sonecor.

The other nominees announced by the guild Monday were:

William Dear, "Window Washers" for Budweiser, "Devo" for Honda, "Concourse of Doom" for Frontier, "Dragnet" for Bell Atlantic and "3-D" for Budweiser.

Leslie Dektor, "Blues" for Levi's 501, "Wait" for Nutrasweet and "Own the Night" for John Player.

Michael Ulick, "Peace" for American Greeting Card, "Statue of Liberty" for Eastman-Kodak and "First Job" for Coca-Cola.

The winner will be announced--along with those in the movie and TV categories--at DGA dinners in Beverly Hills and New York on March 9.
