2017 PGA Awards Winners

With the Academy Awards less than a month away, we’re in the heart of awards season. The nominations for the Oscars were just announced last week, but the various guilds are already handing out their awards leading up to Hollywood’s big night. Tonight will see the announcement of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but before that, we already have the winners of this year’s Producers Guild of America Awards.

The 2017 PGA award winners were announced this past Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, honoring producers both in motion pictures and television. It should come as no surprise that La La Land came out on top with the The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, continuing its march to likely win many if not all of the 14 Oscars it was nominated for. But where did the rest of the awards fall? Which animated film came out on top? Which TV series?

We’re in awards season, which means it’s the time of year when critics’ groups praise their favorites, top 10 lists are published, and words like “overrated” and “underrated” become overused. Awards season can lead to healthy or unnecessarily heated debates among film fans online. The AFI Awards 2016 Official Selections may cause a disagreement or two, especially since they awarded Mel Gibson‘s Hacksaw Ridge and Clint Eastwood‘s Sully, but they’ve also selected other titles that do represent the best of 2016.

Below, see which movies the AFI Awards honored for the 17th year of voting.

atlanta

Atlanta is the first television series Donald Glover (Community) has created. He produces, writes, and stars on the show, which he also directed two episodes of. Glover’s first very own series is off to a great start. The reviews are glowing, and the audience response is about as enthusiastic. If you don’t have FX or haven’t had a chance to watch the pilot yet on Amazon or wherever else, then luckily for you, the first episode has been made available to watch online for free.

Below, watch the Atlanta pilot.

We can debate all day about whether or not we’re still deep in the “Golden Age” of television or if we’ve moved on to whatever follows a golden age, but one thing is for certain: TV is really good right now and some networks have proven themselves more consistent than others. For example, I know I’ll be checking out Atlanta, the new series created by Community star Donald Glover (also known as the hip-hop artist Childish Gambino), because I like the premise and the people involved, but I’ll also be checking it out because FX has a tendency to air shows that I really like and admire – they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt.

I can’t say for sure if the new Atlanta trailer reflects the final feel of the show, but I will say that this lengthy preview suggests something genuinely unique, a comedic drama that feels deeply in touch with the city of its title.

Atlanta trailer

Since leaving Community in 2014, Donald Glover has been popping up all over the big screen. He serenaded ladies in Magic Mike XXL, and helped save Matt Damon in The Martian. He even managed to book a role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming (though not, as far as we know, as the new Spider-Man). But this fall he’ll head back to the small screen with a new FX series, Atlanta.

Glover created the show and also stars as Earn Marks, a young music manager trying to make it in the Atlanta music scene with his cousin, up-and-coming rapper Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry). Also starring are Keith Stanfield and Zazie Beets as their friends. Check out the new Atlanta teaser trailer below.  Read More »
