The Producer’s Guild of America announced their nominations for the best of 2019 today. The PGA, in general, is a pretty reliable precursor of what’s going to get nominated for best picture. Getting a PGA nomination does not, of course, mean that a film is automatically guaranteed to be nominated for an Oscar. But it certainly doesn’t hurt!
With that in mind, here are the PGA nominees for 2019:

I’m sad to see that Uncut Gems was not nominated. It has now missed out on the SAG, the DGA, and the PGA so, despite how much I like the film, it’s probably not going to be nominated. I know, I know. It’s amazing that the Academy would not nominate what I personally think they should nominate but incredibly enough, it happens.
That said, all of you Joker and Little Women fans should be happy. Though both films failed to pick up a DGA nomination today, the PGA should keep them both in the conversation.
The Oscar nominations will be announced on Monday!
