'Deadpool' joins usual suspects as PGA nominee
Fox’s superhero adaptation has earned a theatrical nomination from the Producers Guild Of America, which traditionally serves as a strong form guide for Oscar best picture nominees.
The Guild unveiled its ten nominees on Tuesday for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.
While there was no mention of Paramount’s Silence, Focus Features’ Nocturnal Animals and Loving, or Warner Bros’ Sully. CBS Films’ Hell Or High Water made it on to the list, as did Fox’s Hidden Figures.
The animation nominees are: Golden Globe winner Zootopia, Kubo And The Two Strings, The Secret Life Of Pets, Finding Dory and Moana.
All 2017 Producers Guild Award winners will be announced on January 28 at the Guild’s awards show in Beverly Hills.
This year, the PGA will present special honours to Sony chief Tom Rothman (Milestone Award), James L. Brooks (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Irwin Winkler (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures), the feature film Loving (Stanley Kramer Award), and Megan Ellison (Visionary Award).
