30th Annual Producing Guild Awards Nominations

Yesterday the guild announced the TV series, theatrical movies and theatrical animated movies categories nominations for the 2019 edition of their annual awards; the documentary nominations were announced last November.

The second industry group to announce their nominations show not much difference from the first (SAG) nor from what film critics have been honoring including the so-called "popular" movies that most likely could be included for AMPAS best film.  The biggest snub for me is the omission of If Beale Street Could Talk but also consider a couple of indies, Leave No Trace and Eighth Grade as snubs even when not sure if films qualify.

During the awards ceremony special honors will be given to Kevin Feige (David O Selznick Award), Amy Sherman-Palladino (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Kenya Barris (Visionary Award), Toby Emmerich (Milestone Award), and Jane Fonda (Stanley Kramer Award).
