The 2018 Producers Guild Of America (PGA) Nominations

By Matt Neglia

One of the most important guilds of the year, the Producers Guild Of America (PGA) have announced their nominations for the 10 best films of 2017 (This year they have 11!!). They are a crucial component to possibly understanding what will win the Best Picture Oscar as 6 of the last 8 years of winners have gone on to win the Academy’s big prize. Last year’s winner was “La La Land” and that film along with 2015’s “The Big Short” are the only two since the preferential ballot has been introduced to not win Best Picture at the Oscars. Which film will triumph this year? The answer lies within these nominees. The winner will be announced January 20th 2018.
