Oak Park native Kate Powers has been nominated for a 2015 Writers Guild award for the Rectify episode "Donald the Normal." Powers co-wrote the episode for the Sundance Channel show with Ray McKinnon.

"The nomination is pretty impressive, especially considering the other nominees, which include Mad Men, Game of Thrones [and others]," Powers' brother Larry Powers said in an email last week.

Other episodic drama nominations include episodes from Boardwalk Empire and The Good Wife.

The 2015 Writer's Guild Awards will be held Saturday, Feb. 14 in Los Angeles.
