Nominees for the Producers Guild Awards are endorsed as the predictor of eligibility for producing honors given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA), the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), and the Television Academy.

The list of recipients of the Guild’s honorary awards such as the Milestone Award, the David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures and the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television and the Vanguard Award read like a roster of the industry’s biggest names, including icons such as J.J. Abrams, Steven Bochco, Jerry Bruckheimer, Roger Corman, Clint Eastwood, Sherry Lansing, Lorne Michaels, Ryan Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, and Steven Spielberg, extending back to such legends as Louis B. Mayer, Walt Disney, Alfred Hitchcock, and Billy Wilder.

Considered a strong prognosticator for the Best Picture Oscar®, the announcement of the Guild’s Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures is one of the most eagerly-anticipated of the season.
