Every year, the Producers Guild of American hosts the Producers Guild Awards, which, according to the Producers Guild website, seeks to celebrate “the finest producing work of the year, and gives the Guild an opportunity to honor some of the living legends who have shaped our profession.”  Many consider the list of Producers Guild nominees to be a strong predictor for Oscar success.  The nominees in the film categories are listed below.  A complete list of nominees for film and television can be found over at Hitflix.
