The Producers Guild of America announced their nominations this morning.
The Producers Guild of America is the non-profit trade group that represents, protects and promotes the interests of all members of the producing team in film, television and new media. The PGA has over 5,000 members who work together to protect and improve their careers, the industry and community by facilitating members health benefits, encouraging enforcement of workplace labor laws, the creation of fair and impartial standards for the awarding of producing credits, as well as other education and advocacy efforts. The PGA hosts important industry events including the annual PGA Awards and the Produced By Conference.
Their choices only slightly reflect the Oscar race. The PGA looks at the producing challenges or producing achievements from the past year, rather than the movie as a whole.
