The Producer’s Guild of America’s 2011 Nominations

Since award season is busting out, the PGA nominations have come.  From looking at them, they rank between the SAG and Golden Globes.  And that’s not a good thing.

For the movies, seven are must see films and definite Oscar contenders, The Artist, The Descendants, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, and War Horse.  Two others were Oscar maybes, Bridesmaids and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  As for Ides of March, I feel it’s getting bumbed for its star studded cast and crew rather than the film.  Also suprising is the exclusion of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Tree of Life.

Many of the TV nominations were mediocre.  Good job for Parks and Recreation, but why are Glee, The Big Bang Theory, and 30 Rock there?  And since when is Real Time with Bill Maher and SNL funnier and better than The Daily Show with Jon Stewart?

I’m not going to mention Best Drama for a TV Series seeing all the notable snubs there.  But the reason the PGA is usually similar to the SAG and Globes is because they all prefer star-studded films and shows.


Well, nominations below.
