2018 Producers Guild of America Awards Nominations: ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Get Out,’ and More

The PGA Awards will be distributed two weeks from Saturday in Beverly Hills.


Nominees for the Producers Guild of America Awards have been revealed, capping off a busy award season week that has already included the Palm Springs Film Festival’s awards gala, the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, and the Art Directors and Writers Guild nominations, and the makeup and hairstyling Oscar shortlist — all leading up to Sunday’s Golden Globes.

For the first time, as the result of a tie among the 8,200 PGA voters, not 10 but 11 films will vie for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer, including “Call Me by Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Get Out,” “The Post,” and “Wonder Woman.” Winning this PGA Award typically bodes well for a film’s Best Picture Oscar chances, although last year that was not the case (“La La Land” won at the PGAs, “Moonlight” prevailed at the Academy Awards).

The 29th annual PGA ceremony will take place on Saturday, January 20, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Read the full list of film and television nominees below.
