Producers Guild arbitrations for individual producer credit determination for all film and television categories are still underway. Television series nominations for the 2012 Producers Guild Awards will be announced December 7, 2011. All other nominations for the 2012 Producers Guild Award categories will be announced January 3, 2012, along with the individual producers.

All 2012 Producers Guild Award winners will be announced on January 21, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. This year, the Producers Guild will also award special honors to Steven Spielberg, Leslie Moonves, Don Mischer, and Stan Lee, among others. The 2012 Producers Guild Awards co-chairs are Michael Manheim and Paula Wagner.

  1. Haven’t seen all these, but Senna was really quite good. Strongly recommend it to those who have an interest in Formula 1 and one of its best drivers…ever.

  2. What a breath of fresh air to see this list.

    Thank you PGA members for voting on films that you actually see, and going for the best when you vote.

    All of these films on this short list should all be up for an Oscar this year!

  3. So, I guess this pretty much cements PROJECT NIM (on HBO March 2012) and BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK (already on Zeitgeist DVD) as two of the five Oscar noms?
    The other three here are already out of the running/ineligible…
