Deadpool, Arrival, Moonlight Land Producers Guild (PGA) Nominations


After cracking the Golden Globes, the Critics Choice Awards and the Writers Guild, Deadpool has hit the PGA, the Producers Guild of America. It might come as a surprise to most but the film was made for a shockingly low budget for a Marvel superhero film ($60 million) and earned over $360 million in the US alone.

Elsewhere, the expected presence of Oscar frontrunners like La La Land, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight showed up. Martin Scorsese’s Silence was again a no-show.

The five nominees in the animated feature category are: Finding Dory, Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, The Secret Life of Pets and Zootopia.

As previously announced, the PGA will also honor Loving (Stanley Kramer award), Megan Ellison (Visionary award), Irwin Winkler (David O. Selznick achievement award in theatrical motion pictures), James L. Brooks (Norman Lear achievement award in television) and Tom Rothman (Milestone award).

The 28th Producers Guild of America (PGA) awards will take place on January 28th at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
