‘Promising Young Woman’, ‘Sound of Metal’, ‘Minari’, and More Score Producers Guild of America Award Nominations


The Producers Guild of America has announced this year’s list of nominees for the PGA Awards, set to be handed out in a virtual ceremony on March 24. The PGA Awards are often seen as a reliable indicator of Oscar nomination prospects for films, but the PGAs also hand out honors for television projects as well. This year’s nominees cover a wide variety of genres, with comedies like Borat Subsequent Moviefilm competing against more dramatic fare like Promising Young Woman and Sound of Metal. Check out the full list below, and be sure to check back for the winners on March 24! A note: where honorees are listed as “eligibility pending”, the PGA is still determining who will be given producer credit for the purposes of the award.
