The Producers Guild of America announced Monday its list of film and television nominees for its 2014 awards, and the list is as notable for its omissions as it is for its selections.
Among the films in the running for the top prize — known formally as the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures — are “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “The Theory of Everything,” and “Whiplash.”
But it’s the films that were left off the list that had awards season prognosticators in a tizzy Monday. “Selma,” “Unbroken,” and “Into the Woods” all failed to score nominations, leading some to wonder if those movies’ Oscar chances have dimmed significantly.
On the television front, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Fargo,” “The Normal Heart,” “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” and “Sherlock” all scored nominations in the long-form television category. Those series join the previously-announced nominees in the episodic television category, which includes “Breaking Bad,” “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “House of Cards,” and “True Detective.”
The complete list announced Monday — including the PGA’s nominated animated features — is below. The awards will be presented at a ceremony on January 24.
