A strong indicator of the upcoming nominees for Best Picture, Best Documentary, and Best Animated Film.
The 76th annual Golden Globe Awards won't be the only awards ceremony to take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California this month: the Producers Guild of America (PGA) will also be hosting its celebration at the hotel later in the month on Saturday, January 19th. And now the nominations for that event have been announced.
Honoring those behind the camera, that is, the producers, the PGA Awards are an annual celebration of a role that occasionally goes unrecognized (and depending on whom you ask, undefined) in awards coverage.
Now in its 30th year, the ceremony serves as a very strong "guess-timate" of the films that will ultimately go on to be nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Documentary, and Best Animated Film.
Below are this year's film nominees.
