The 2017 Producers Guild Association Award Nominations Announced!

The PGA nominations have been announced and it’s a line up of the usual suspects with bonus nods going to Deadpool (which is now an Oscar contender) and, deservingly, Lion. Great to see Life, Animated get a nod in the Best Documentary field, too. Best Animated reads like the usual U.S. studio fare and it is disappointing that films like My Life as a Zucchini and The Red Turtle don’t feature (Mind you, these films wouldn’t be eligible in this organisation.)

My tips in red.

THE 2017 PGA AWARDS are announced on 28 JANUARY, 2017 in LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
