Deadline’s PGA Awards Live Blog

The 28th Annual PGA Awards have been handed out at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles.

Awards season darling La La Land took the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the PGA’s equivalent of the Best Picture Oscar. There’s often a correlation between the Oscars best picture winner and the PGA film winner, but there also have been wild discrepencies. The Big Short took the PGA’s top film prize last year, but the Best Picture Oscar went to Spotlight. So stay tuned on that.

On the TV side, newcomer Netflix’s Stranger Things took the drama nod, and FX breakout Atlanta took the comedy honor.

In addition to the top film and TV winners, the PGA presented its highest honorary award, the 2017 Milestone Award to Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Pictures Group Chairman Tom Rothman, its annual Norman Lear Award For Television to James L. Brooks, and its 2017 David O. Selznick Achievement Award to Irwin Winkler. Focus Features’ Loving received the guild’s Stanley Kramer Award as a production that “illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues,” and Annapurna producer Megan Ellison received the Visionary Award.

Here’s how it all went down.
