Whelll...! The Producers Guild of America has decided to do their usual and add to the bullshit that is the slowly developing, rapidly degrading ongoing awards season by announcing the nominees for their 2021 awards. And look who's cracked their Outstanding Producer (read: Best Picture) 10: Being the Ricardos, a movie no-one on Earth seems to have liked except big awards voters and dumb middlebrow critics. Also in the list, for relief I guess, are actually good movies like Licorice Pizza and West Side Story, but is this the worst slate of PGA nominations... ever? Check the Sing 2 nod in the Animated category and get back to me. Winners will be announced on the 26th of February, so they've just under a month to acquire even a little bit of taste.
