The 2022 Producers Guild Awards are being presented at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
The nominees for the top prize of the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for outstanding producer of theatrical motion pictures are Being the Ricardos; Belfast; CODA; Don’t Look Up; Dune; King Richard; Licorice Pizza; The Power of the Dog ; Tick, Tick … Boom!; and West Side Story.
Eight of those films are nominated for the best picture Oscar, with the Film Academy nominating Drive My Car and Nightmare Alley instead of Being the Ricardos and Tick, Tick … Boom!
Early winners on Saturday night include Ted Lasso, RuPaul’s Drag Race and Last Week with John Oliver in the TV categories and Summer of Soul for documentary motion picture.
The guild also handed out a number of special honors, with Ryan Murphy presenting Greg Berlanti with the Norman Lear Award as the latter spoke about his pledge for LGBTQ presentation as he remembered being “a deeply closeted gay kid and the kind of vitriol we’re seeing now so openly by members of the Florida Legislature or by the governor of Texas about trans kids or gender non-conforming young people and their families. There was that kind of homophobia overt and casual and almost every corner of every room.” He also paid tribute to Lear’s work and joked, “I have a lot to thank Norman for and not just because I’m pretty sure the first drag performance I did as a kid was Edith Bunker.”
Steven Spielberg is also honoring Kathleen Kennedy and George Lucas with the Milestone Award, as Rita Moreno is being honored with Stanley Kramer Award; Mary Parent with David O. Selznick Award and Issa Rae with the Visionary Award.
The PGA Awards, which was originally set to take place on Feb. 26, is one of a number of events that were moved from their original date earlier this year due to a surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the omicron variant.
Earlier this week, the PGA announced the winners for its Innovation Award and for best sports, children’s and short-form programs. The Innovation Award went to For All Mankind: Time Capsule, while 100 Foot Wave took best sports program, Muppets Haunted Mansion won the children’s award and Carpool Karaoke: The Series was named best short form.
