With the Golden Globes in the rear view mirror, awards season is now heading into Guild territory. The latest to announce its nominees is the Producers Guild of America. They recently unveiled their TV nominees, but today they have announced their picks for the categories of theatrical motion pictures and animated theatrical motion pictures.
The PGA’s best film award is Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures and as expected, awards season frontrunners Moonlight and La La Land are on the list. Also making a surprising appearance on the list is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool. The inclusion of an R-rated comic book popcorn flick is an unprecedented, yet welcomed change for the PGA.
On the animation side of things, there aren’t many surprises on the list. Golden Globe winner Zootopia is up for the award as well as its main competitor Kubo and the Two Strings.
