The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today that the 22nd Annual PGA Awards, honoring excellence in motion picture and television production, will take place on Saturday, January 22, 2011.
In 1990, the PGA held the first-ever Golden Laurel Awards, which were renamed the Producers Guild Awards in 2002. Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck took home the award for Best Produced Motion Picture for “Driving Miss Daisy,” establishing the Guild awards as a bellwether for the Oscars. This year, the PGA awarded “The Hurt Locker” with its Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures. The film was also awarded Best Picture at the 2010 Academy Awards.
