The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced key dates and a new venue for the 31st Annual Producers Guild Awards, as well as an improved submission portal (click here) that will better serve applicants. The Producers Guild Awards will take place at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, January 18, 2020.  

“Each year, the PGA has the privilege to honor outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television and new media productions at the Producers Guild Awards,” said Gail Berman and Lucy Fisher, presidents of the Producers Guild of America. “We look forward to celebrating excellence in our field alongside giants of our industry who’ve defined the art and craft of producing.”

The Producers Guild Awards recognize the producers who have created an undeniable impact on the producing profession. Last year’s honors included Jane Fonda for the 2019 Stanley Kramer Award, Amy Sherman-Palladino for the 2019 Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television and Kenya Barris for the 2019 Visionary Award. Producing teams behind Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Green Book, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Americans and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were among those honored in the motion pictures and television categories.  

In addition, the Guild will host its PGA East and West Coast Celebrations of 2020 Producers Guild Awards nominees and producing teams the week of January 13. Details for the celebrations will be announced at a later date.
