The Producers Guild of America on Tuesday unveiled its movie and TV nominations.
The nominees for the PGA's top prize of the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures consist of a number of best picture frontrunners including Ford v Ferrari, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Knives Out, Little Women, Marriage Story, Parasite and the Golden Globes' best drama and comedy/musical motion picture winners 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, respectively. Parasite on Sunday won the Golden Globes' award for best foreign-language film, and Joker earlier Tuesday topped the BAFTA nominations.
Little Women's Amy Pascal is the first solo female producer nominated for the Zanuck Award since Gone Girl's Cean Chaffin in 2014. Only three other solo female producers have been nominated for the PGA's top prize: Niki Marvin (The Shawshank Redemption) and Jan Chapman (The Piano) in 1994 and Jane Scott (Shine) in 1997.
Last year, Green Book won the Zanuck Award ahead of its best picture Oscar triumph.
Best picture Oscar hopefuls not nominated for the PGA Awards' top prize include frontrunner The Two Popes; major threats Pain and Glory, The Farewell, A Hidden Life and Uncut Gems; and possibilities Just Mercy, Rocketman, Bombshell, Dolemite Is My Name and Harriet. However, Bombshell, it was previously announced, will be recognized with a special award.
The guild also announced the nominees for its award for animated movies, recognizing Abominable, Frozen 2, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Missing Link and Toy Story 4.
On the TV side, drama series nominees are HBO's Big Little Lies and Watchmen; Netflix's The Crown; and recent Golden Globe drama series winner Succession and the final season of Game of Thrones, both airing on HBO.
Comedy nominees are Amazon's recent Golden Globe comedy series winner Fleabag and the streamer's latest season of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel; HBO's Barry and the final season of Veep; and Pop TV/CBC's Schitt's Creek.
Limited series nominees are FX's Fosse/Verdon; HBO's Chernobyl and True Detective; and Netflix's Unbelievable and When They See Us.
The guild's nominees for producer of TV and streamed motion pictures are the individuals who worked on HBO's Deadwood: The Movie; National Geographic's Apollo: Missions to the Moon; and Netflix's American Son, Black Mirror: Striking Vipers and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
Notable nominees in the categories of nonfiction, live and game/competition TV series include HBO's Leaving Neverland, Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly, Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Netflix's Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones, HBO's Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, NBC's Saturday Night Live, Fox's The Masked Singer and VH1's RuPaul's Drag Race.
The guild last month announced nominees in the categories of sports, children's and shortform TV programs as well as the nominees for its inaugural Innovation Award, which will honor "an outstanding entertainment endeavor across the emerging mediums of VR, AR, experiential and more." The winners in these categories will be announced Jan. 13 and Jan. 16 at nominees events in New York and Los Angeles, respectively.
The 31st annual Producers Guild Awards are set to take place Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
As previously announced, the PGA will also present special honors during next month's awards ceremony to Ted Sarandos (Milestone Award); Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner of Plan B (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures); Marta Kauffman (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television); Octavia Spencer (Visionary Award); and the Lionsgate film Bombshell (Stanley Kramer Award). The nominees for best producer of a documentary feature were announced in November.
A complete list of this year's movie and TV nominees follows.
Due to an editing error, an earlier version of this story included the wrong year for Jane Scott's Shine nomination, which occurred in 1997, not 2006.
