The Producers Guild of America (PGA) has announced nominations for the 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards on Friday.
This year, however, 11 films are vying for The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, which means there was a tie during the voting process.
Those in contention include The Big Sick,” “Call Me by Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Get Out,” “I, Tonya,” “Lady Bird,” “Molly’s Game,” “The Post,” “The Shape of Water,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” and “Wonder Woman”.
Comprised of roughly 7,500 members, PGA is historically a good Oscar bellwether: in the last 10 years, the Zanuck award winner matched with that of the Academy Award best picture, disagreeing just the last two years when La La Land (2016) and The Big Short (2015) won the PGA while the Oscars went to Moonlight in 2016 and Spotlight the prior year.
This bodes well for “The Shape of Water,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” and “The Post” which seem to emerged as front-runners during the awards season. But the list is not without any surprises as one of the year’s biggest boxoffice hits, “Wonder Woman” also made the cut.
The winner will be announced during the Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, CA.
