PGA Nominates an Unprecedented 11 Films


The Producers Guild of America Awards announced its 11 nominees on Friday. A tie vote meant that the usual PGA top 10 expanded to 11.

Surprises include nominations for Wonder Woman, Molly’s Game and The Big Sick. The Oscar for Best Picture almost always needs a PGA nomination and most importantly a PGA win. This makes Wonder Woman a possible nominee for Best Picture. It is a sign of the end of days.

Unfortunately, The Florida Project, Darkest Hour and Mudbound failed to make the list. Wonder Woman over The Florida Project? What is happening?

When the Oscars expanded to 10 nominees in 2009, the PGA did the same. In 2011 the academy changed to a sliding scale of anywhere between 5 and 10 nominees. The PGA smartly stuck with 10 or as in this year 11.  The Producers Guild has predicted 88% of the Best Picture nominees over the past eight years.

PGA Awards winners will be revealed on January 20th at a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
