At long last the Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced its final batch of television nominees for the 2021 PGA Awards, providing a buzzy boost for shows looking to gain a foothold in the 2021 Emmy race, as well as revisiting some Emmy darlings from 2020.

Both the drama and comedy series categories saw a lot of turnover from last year’s PGA nominations. In drama, current Emmy favorite, Netflix’s”The Crown,” was the lone holdover from 2020. The same goes for Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek” in comedy series. But perhaps the most exciting aspect of today’s nominations is that both categories have the potential to crown a series that has never before won a PGA Award, creating an opportunity to honor a new generation of TV’s best shows.

Several freshman series also nabbed nominations from the PGA for their first seasons, including Netflix’s “Bridgerton,” Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso,” and HBO Max’s “The Flight Attendant.”

The PGA has altered its plans for the 32nd Annual Producers Guild Awards in light of global circumstances, opting out of a traditional in-person ceremony and instead hosting a virtual awards ceremony on March 24 at which the winners of today’s categories will be revealed.

The organization has also introduced a new event entitled “A Day with the PGA Awards Nominees.” The virtual celebration will be held Saturday, March 20 and will feature panels with nominated producers, as an expansion of the traditional PGA Nominees breakfast which would typically be held the morning of the Awards ceremony itself. The winners of the Sports, Children’s, and Short Form categories, plus the PGA Innovation Awards, will be announced during this fete.
