2014 Producers Guild Awards Nominees Announced

2014 Producers Guild Awards Nominees Announced

The nominees for the 25th Annual Producers Guild of America Awards were announced this week as awards season picks up after the holidays. There are only four categories for film, the big one being The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. Most of the films we’ve seen from other organizational honors this year have been nominated while Inside Llewyn Davis and The Butler have been left out in the cold. The PGA winners will be announced on January 19, and you kind find the complete list of nominees after the break. 

Along with film, the PGA Awards also celebrate television. There are eight categories for TV that are split up like the Golden Globes, where drama and comedy are separated. The Producers Guild will also present special honors to Barbara Broccoli & Michael G. Wilson (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures), Robert Iger (Milestone Award), Peter Jackson & Joe Letteri (Vanguard Award), Chuck Lorre (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Chris Meledandri (Visionary Award) and Fruitvale Station (Stanley Kramer Award).

The production companies are pretty evenly spread with Columbia, Warner Bros., and Paramount each receiving two nominations for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award and one each for Sony, Focus Features, Disney, and Fox Searchlight. And the nominees are…
