'Nomadland' Takes The Top Prize At The 2021 Producers Guild Of America Awards

Nomadland's journey to Oscar frontrunner this awards season just gained a little more momentum. Chloé Zhao's exquisite road drama won the top prize at the 2021 Producers Guild of America Awards at a virtual ceremony on Wednesday. Meanwhile, on the TV side, Netflix's The Crown dominated. Read more about the 2021 PGA Awards winners below.

According to The Hollywood ReporterNomadland and Netflix's The Crown topped the 2021 PGA Awards, with Nomadland taking home the Outstanding Theatrical Motion Pictures Award, while The Crown won Outstanding Drama Series.

It's another notch in Nomadland's belt as it collects another win on the road to the Oscars. The Frances McDormand-starring road drama has become the clear favorite to win at the Oscars this year, in one of the rare times that the best movie of the year has actually become the front-runner. While PGA Award winners have not always been a consistent predictor for Best Picture winner, it certainly would take a lot for Nomadland to not win big at the Academy Awards.

"In a year in we have all been leading such isolated live and movies have felt so vital, we are proud to have produced a film about community and what connects us," Nomadland producer Peter Spears said at the virtual ceremony.

Meanwhile, Soul won the animated feature award, while the Disney+ stage recording of Hamilton won the televised or streamed motion pictures category.
