The Producers Guild of America nominees were announced today.
The PGA is often seen as being a pretty strong precursor as far as the actual Oscar nominations are concerned. Therefore, it’s a bit surprising to see that Selma was snubbed. (A lot of people are speculating that it may be because the Selma screeners were sent out late. We’ll see.) It’s less surprising that Unbroken was snubbed because Unbroken has not exactly lived up to expectations. (I’ll post my review of the film soon.) At this point, it’s hard to be surprised to see Nightcrawler mentioned because — for a supposed long shot — Nightcrawler‘s been doing pretty well as far as the precursors are concerned. Finally, the producers of former front runners Foxcatcher and Gone Girl have to be happy to see that their film has not been as forgotten by the guilds as it has been by many of the critical groups.
Here are the nominees!
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
