PGA Awards Film Noms: ‘La La Land’, ‘Hidden Figures’, ‘Deadpool’ Among 10 Films

The Producers Guild of America unveiled the 10 movies up for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures this morning for the 28th annual PGA Awards. The guild also unveiled noms for best producer in the animated category. Winners will be revealed January 28 at the Beverly Hilton.

The 10 films in the PGA’s equivalent of the Best Picture race is led by Lionsgate’s La La Land, which swept the Golden Globes on Sunday to become the prohibitive Oscar front-runner. It is joined on the PGA list by a diverse roster of noms from every genre: Lionsgate’s Hacksaw Ridge, Paramount’s Fences and Arrival, Fox’s Deadpool and Hidden Figures, CBS Films’ Hell Or High Water, The Weinstein Company’s Lion, Roadside/Amazon’s Manchester By The Sea and A24’s Moonlight. All have been in the mix this awards season.

Last year, the PGA picked The Big Short as its Zanuck winner;  it went on to get an Oscar nom. That pic’s producers — Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner — return this year with Moonlight. Unlike last year though, their Big Short colleague Brad Pitt is not counted as a producer this year (he’s an executive producer) and therefore is not eligible.

In the animated field today, Disney had three pics on the list: Finding Dory, Moana and Golden Globe winner Zootopia. They are joined by Focus’ Kubo And The Two Strings and Universal’s The Secret Life Of Pets.

The PGA announced its TV nominations last week, and its documentary noms were unveiled in November, with an updated list out today including all eligible producers.
