The Producers Guild Awards Nominees Are…


The awards show nominations just keep on trickling out today…

The Producers Guild of America announced its selection for the 10 best motion picture productions of 2016 today. The choice for the #1 winner will be announced on January 28.

If you like to prognosticate, the PGA Awards are important to pay attention to, as the producers’ winner often matches up with the big kahuna at the Oscars (though last year there was a split when the PGA selected The Big Short ahead of the Academy’s choice of Spotlight).
