The Producers Guild of America announced its nominations for the motion picture and television categories for the upcoming 33rd PGA Awards, dominated by the streamers.

Netflix Dominates

Netflix ruled the film side with three films landing in the field of 10 nominees: “Don’t Look Up” from Adam McKay, “The Power of the Dog” from Jane Campion and “Tick, Tick … Boom!” from Lin-Manuel Miranda.


Warner captured two nods from its slate: “Dune” from Denis Villeneuve and “King Richard” from Reinaldo Marcus Green.

Amazon Studios’ Being the Ricardos from Aaron Sorkin snagged one of the coveted spots, which helps its best picture chances considerably.


Some of the omissions were pronounced, most notably Apple Original Films’ The Tragedy of Macbeth from Joel Coen missing out on a nod, even though “CODA” made it into the lineup.

Other nominees included “Licorice Pizza” from Paul Thomas Anderson and “West Side Story” from Steven Spielberg.

Also missing were the two blockbuster movies that fans have been hoping for inclusion, such as the global blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The PGA announced the extension of the voting window for select categories. Final ballots for TV and film will now close on March 8; final ballots for children’s, short form and sports programs will remain on their originally announced closing date on Feb. 10.

The 33rd Annual Producers Guild Awards will be held Saturday, March 19, 2022, at Fairmont Century Plaza.
