The Producers Guild of America (PGA) today announced key dates and a new venue for the 31st Annual Producers Guild Awards, as well as an improved submission portal that will better serve applicants. The Producers Guild Awards will take place at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, January 18, 2020. Last year’s theatrical winner, Green Book, went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.  

“Each year, the PGA has the privilege to honor outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television and new media productions at the Producers Guild Awards,” said Gail Berman and Lucy Fisher, Presidents of the Producers Guild of America. “We look forward to celebrating excellence in our field alongside giants of our industry who’ve defined the art and craft of producing.”

This announcement is one more puzzle piece of the increasingly packed schedule for the upcoming awards season due to the Motion Picture Academy moving up the Oscars from late February to February 2nd next year. That sent all guilds and winter film festivals into a flurry to lay claim to the fewer weekends available for everything from the Screen Actors Guild Awards to the Santa Barbara Film Festival. Now, the PGA, DGA and SAG will all announce their winners within about a one-week period.

The nomination period will begin the same day as the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations (December 12th) with PGA noms coming January 7th – the same day that nomination voting for the Oscars ends.

2019/2020 Awards Calendar

The Producers Guild Awards recognize the producers who have created an undeniable impact on the producing profession. Last year’s honors included Jane Fonda for the 2019 Stanley Kramer Award, Amy Sherman-Palladino for the 2019 Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television and Kenya Barris for the 2019 Visionary Award. Producing teams behind Won’t You Be My Neighbor?Green BookSpider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Americans and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were among those honored in the motion pictures and television categories.  

In addition, the Guild will host its PGA East and West Coast Celebrations of 2020 Producers Guild Awards nominees and producing teams the week of January 13. Details for the celebrations will be announced at a later date.
