The nominees for the 2016 Producers Guild of America Awards have been announced, with awards-season juggernaut “La La Land” picking up a Best Theatrical Motion Picture nomination alongside “Arrival,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “Moonlight” and more. The PGA Awards are often seen as a reliable indicator of how the Academy Awards will go, as the top prizes have aligned 19 times out of 28 — though last year was an exception, when “The Big Short” won at the PGAs and “Spotlight” took home the Best Picture Oscar.

This year’s ceremony, the 28th overall, will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 28. Full list of nominees below.
