Awards season continued on Saturday, January 19, when the 30th Annual Producers Guild Awards were handed out at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
According to the Producers Guild of America‘s website, the PGA Awards “celebrates the finest producing work of the year, and gives the Guild an opportunity to honor some of the living legends who have shaped [the] profession.” There are 13 categories, spanning both film and television.
Deadline noted that the PGA Awards’ best movie winner has gone on to win an Academy Award 20 out of 29 times. This year, Green Book won the top prize. Is an Oscar in its future?
Meanwhile, television writer, director, and producer Amy Sherman-Palladino was honored with the special Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television. Known for her work on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Gilmore Girls, she was presented with the trophy by Lauren Graham.
“I hope that I took away from Mr. Lear the ability to take care of my troupe, make the women feel empowered, and not make the men feel like schmucks, to make sure that whatever we do, we do it in great love,” she said during her acceptance speech, reported Variety.
Robert Downey, Jr., Sterling K. Brown, Emma Stone, Regina Hall, Amy Adams, Ben Stiller, Alison Brie, Jordana Brewster, John David Washington, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson, Bradley Cooper, Padma Lakshmi, John C.
