Producers Guild Award Nominations Include ‘La La Land’, ‘Deadpool’
The Producers Guild Award nominations are finally in, and it’s yet another big accolade for presumed Oscar frontrunner La La Land. However, there were some surprises in the lineup.
In addition to current box office champ Hidden Figures, comic book favorite Deadpool made the cut with a nomination for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. While this might not seem like a big deal, the PGAs are generally among the best indicators of future success in the Oscar race, since over 75 percent of Producers Guild nominees receive Academy Award nominations for Best Picture. So while it might be unsurprising to see frontrunners like Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight and all-time Golden Globes champ La La Land in the running, it can be a pretty big shock to see underdog favorites like Deadpool, Arrival and Hell or High Water make the cut.
