Wonder Woman - 2018 PGA Awards Nominees

Awards season is in full swing, and today we have the Producers Guild of America announcing their nominations for the annual PGA Awards. This is one of those awards that is a good indicator of how the Academy Awards nominations are going to fall when the time comes, so a certain comic book movie getting a nomination is kind of a big deal.

The 2018 PGA nominees include the standard awards season favorites like Get Out, The Post, Lady Bird, and Call Me By Your Name. But due to a tie, the full list also features 11 total nominees, which has allowed Wonder Woman to come away with one of the nominations. Find out the rest of the nominees below.

The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures
The Big Sick
Call Me by Your Name
Get Out
I, Tonya
Lady Bird
Molly’s Game
The Post
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman could have been the first superhero movie since The Dark Knight to be nominated for the PGA Award, but Deadpool scored a nomination last year, so the Merc with the Mouth stole some of her thunder. However, neither The Dark Knight nor Deadpool went on to get nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. That’s something Wonder Woman might be able to accomplish, especially if it’s triumphing over other awards season favorites like Mudbound, Phantom Thread, The Darkest Hour and The Florida Project. Honestly, as much as I enjoyed Wonder Woman, I don’t see how it’s coming out on top of any of those movies, especially The Florida Project, but that’s just me.

Interestingly enough, this puts I, Tonya in the running for Best Picture in a big way, something that many have slept on, choosing to focus on the performances instead of the movie as a whole. It’s also nice to see The Post get some love from the PGA after being shut out of the WGA nominations.

Of course, the PGA nominations are merely a precursor to the Oscar nominations, and there are always surprises and differences between all of the guilds and the final Oscar nominees. We’ll have to wait and see how those fall when the Oscar nominations are announced on January 23.

In the meantime, check out the rest of the 2018 PGA Awards nominees below, including nominations for some of your favorite television shows like Stranger Things, Game of Thrones and Sherlock.
