2018 Producers Guild Award Nominees Announced!

Awkwafina and Constance Wu in Crazy Rich Asians

And it's bad news for Beale Street fans! Indeed, it's bad news for fans of critically-acclaimed independent film, as the PGA's 2018 nominees for Outstanding Producer are thin on such titles, and typically thick on the big studio hits. So it's hooray for Crazy Rich Asians, but boo for Bohemian Rhapsody and A Quiet Place, confirming once again that these voters simply don't have the taste level deserving of their status. To wit, check out the nod for The Grinch in the Animated category, over how many better options?! The PGA's Documentary nominees were already known; I've included them here, but you can also check them out at this link. Winners will be announced pretty soon - the 19th of January. Until then, though, these are your PGA nominees:
