PGA Awards 2024 Nominations: ‘Maestro,’ ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ and ‘Past Lives’ Among Contenders

The nominations for the 2024 Producers Guild of America Awards have been unveiled ahead of the annual ceremony, set to take place on February 25.

In the Theatrical Motion Picture category, films like “American Fiction,” “Anatomy of a Fall,” “Barbie,” “The Holdovers,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Oppenheimer,” “Past Lives,” “Poor Things,” and “The Zone of Interest” are the contenders.

Formally known as the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the accolade has historically been considered a strong prognosticator for the Best Picture Oscar, with 15 of the previous 20 winners going on to win the biggest honors at the Academy Awards.

In the Animated Theatrical Motion Picture category, “The Boy and the Heron,” “Elemental,” “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” are in the running.
