Hollywood’s top producers have named the best films and TV productions of the year with the annual Producers Guild of America Awards nominations. The eclectic mix includes projects from Disney, A24, and a group of RuPaul’s Drag Race winners. Hocus Pocus 2 Gets 2023 PGA Award Nomination

Disney’s mega-popular, Bette Midler-starring sequel Hocus Pocus 2 scored a nomination in a category for streaming/televised motion pictures after breaking a streaming record upon its Disney+ debut in September.

Other TV nominees include The White LotusAndorObi-Wan KenobiAbbott ElementaryHacks, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7, the Emmy-winning reality competition series’ first-ever all-winners season.

Though the group’s list of the ten best films of 2022 includes awards season mainstays like Everything Everywhere All at OnceThe FabelmansTárThe Banshees of InisherinAvatar: The Way of WaterGlass Onion: A Knives Out MysteryElvis, and Top Gun: Maverick, the final two slots went to unexpected films: The Whale and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

While both movies received positive reviews from critics, they’ve yet to make headway in the Oscar race outside of solid support for their respective casts, particularly Brendan Fraser and Angela Bassett, both of whom have achieved steady individual recognition since the start of the season. The PGA endorsing the films signals a late-breaking uptick in interest that could build momentum for their Oscars chances.

As previously announced, the PGA will also recognize Top Gun: Maverick‘s Tom Cruise with its David O. Selznick prize, honoring those with an “extraordinary body of work” in motion pictures.

Comprised of around 7,000 members spanning film, TV, and new media, the PGA is, alongside the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, one of the most potent industry unions on the awards trail, with its winners and nominees typically reflecting significant players in the race, as voted on by members who also cast ballots for the Oscars.

The PGA’s nominations regularly line up with the Academy’s. Since the PGA’s debut ceremony in 1990, all of the PGA’s Best Theatrical Motion Picture winners have gone on to either win (23 titles, including last year’s CODA) or be nominated (the remaining 11) for the Academy Award for Best Picture — a statistic that also includes the 2013 Sandra Bullock blockbuster Gravity, which tied at the PGA Awards with the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner, 12 Years a Slave, in 2014.

In addition to sharing membership, the PGA also votes similarly to the Academy after adopting the preferential ballot system in recent years. Both groups have expanded their top category’s nominations slots, with an average of seven to nine PGA nominees eventually receiving the Best Picture nomination at the Oscars each season.

The 2023 PGA Awards winners will be announced on Feb. 25 at a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. See the complete list of nominees below.
