Nothing Compares

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) in the US has announced the 2023 Documentary Motion Picture nominees, a list that notably does not include Venice Golden Lion winner All The Beauty And The Bloodshed, regarded in the industry as an Oscar frontrunner.

The nominated films are All That Breathes, Descendant, Fire Of Love, Navalny, Nothing Compares, Retrograde, and The Territory.

Civil rights historical investigation Descendant, vulcanologist romance Fire Of Love, Russian opposition leader profile Navalny, eco-activism film TheTerritory, Sinead O’Connor profile Nothing Compares, and nature documentary All That Breathes premiered at Sundance 2022.

They are distributed in the US by Netflix, Neon, HBO Max, National Geographic, Showtime, and Sideshow/Submarine Deluxe, respectively.

Retrograde, about the relationship between US Green Berets and their Afghan trainee soldiers, premiered at Telluride and is distributed by Hulu.

The films will advance to the final round of voting for the 34th Annual Producers Guild Awards on February 25 2023. Each selection is in the process of being vetted for individual producer eligibility 

Last year producers Joseph Patel, David Dinerstein, and Robert Fyvolent won the award for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Motion Picture for Summer Of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised).

The nominees for narrative features, animation features, TV series and special, and televised/streamed films will be announced on January 12.
