The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced the motion picture nominations for the 28th Annual Producers Guild Awards. The categories are The Darryl F.

All 2017 Producers Guild Award winners will be announced on Saturday, January 28, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. This year, the Producers Guild will present special honors to Tom Rothman (Milestone Award), James L. Brooks (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Irwin Winkler (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures), the feature film Loving (Stanley Kramer Award), and Megan Ellison (Visionary Award).
The 2017 Producers Guild Awards co-chairs are Donald De Line and Amy Pascal. Last week, the PGA announced Producers Guild Awards nominations for the television series/specials, children’s programs, long-form television, sports programs, and digital series categories.
In 1990, the Producers Guild held the first-ever Golden Laurel Awards, which were renamed the Producers Guild Awards in 2002.
