The Producers Guild of America has revealed its nominees in the TV series, theatrical movies and theatrical animated movies categories.

The nominations feature a number of frequent contenders from recent awards shows as well as a few projects that have been less represented by groups that have announced award nominations and winners over the past few weeks, as awards season has kicked into high gear.

The 10 nominees for the guild's top film prize, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for outstanding producer of theatrical motion pictures, are Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, Green Book, A Quiet Place, Roma, A Star Is Born and Vice.

The inclusion of A Quiet Place comes after the John Krasinski-directed horror film only earned one Golden Globe nomination (for best score) and one Screen Actors Guild award nomination (with Emily Blunt up for best performance by a female actor in a supporting role).

The PGA's award for animated-movie producer will go to one of the following films: Dr. Seuss' The Grinch, Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

On the TV side, the nominees for outstanding producer of episodic TV, drama, include The Americans, Better Call Saul, The Handmaid's Tale, Ozark and This Is Us.

Comedy series nominees are Atlanta, Barry, GLOW, The Good Place and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

For limited series, nominees include The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Escape at Dannemora, Maniac, The Romanoffs and Sharp Objects.

Other notable nominations include one for Sense8's series finale movie; a posthumous nod for Anthony Bourdain; and nods for high-profile late-night programs The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Real Time With Bill Maher and Saturday Night Live.

Onetime (and possibly future) Oscar host Kevin Hart is nominated for his What The Fit shortform program along with Apple Music's Carpool Karaoke spinoff and Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, among other nominees in the category.

The PGA announced its documentary nominees in November.

The nominees for best producing of documentary theatrical motion pictures are The Dawn Wall, about a two-person team's attempt to free-climb the smoothest part of Yosemite's El Capitan monolith; Free Solo, about mountaineer Alex Honnold's effort to scale the same formation without a rope; Hal, an in-depth look at Harold and Maude director Hal Ashby; Into the Okavango, which takes viewers on a grueling journey down a river that runs across Angola, Namibia and Botswana; RBG, about the life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; Three Identical Strangers, the story of identical triplets who were separated at birth; and Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, which centers on Mr. Rogers.

Also during the awards show, special honors will be given to Kevin Feige, Amy Sherman-Palladino, Kenya Barris, Toby Emmerich and Jane Fonda.

The 2019 awards event chairs are Donald De Line and Amy Pascal.

The 30th annual PGA Awards are set to be handed out in a Jan. 19 ceremony at the Beverly Hilton.
