The Producers Guild said its 30th annual PGA Awards are set for Saturday, January 19, 2019 at the Beverly Hilton. Donald De Line and Amy Pascal return as awards chairs for a third consecutive year.
Submissions are now open in all categories — Motion Pictures, Television Series/Specials, Long and Short Form Television, Sports Programs and Children’s Programs — for calendar year 2018 via the guild’s website (see the full timeline below). Nominations in film and TV categories will be announced January 4.
This past January, the PGA honored Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water with its marquee Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. The victory helped cement the pic’s status as Oscar Best Picture frontrunner — it later won that prize.
Amazon’s comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Hulu’s drama The Handmaid’s Tale took the top TV prizes.
