2018 Producers Guild Award Nominations Announced

The Producers Guild of America is comprised of roughly 7,500 members. Since its inception in 1989, the PGA has become a solid barometer when it comes to predicting eventual Oscar Best Picture winners. When the Academy changed the Best Picture field to a maximum of 10 nominees, the PGA’s Best Picture winner has aligned up 75 percent of the time. The only two exceptions are The Big Short (2015) and La La Land (2017). The nominees announced today should feel optimistic about their chances of snagging an Oscar nom.

The PGA nominations include several films have done well during awards season. Lady Bird, Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Get Out, The Big Sick, I Tonya and The Post made the cut. The biggest surprise, and a pleasant one at that, is that Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is in the mix. Fingers crossed this means the superhero flick will be one of the contenders when the Academy reveals their nominations on Tuesday, January 23.

The 2018 Producers Guild of America Awards will be announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on January 20. Check out the full list of nominees below.
