The 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, January 20th, 2018.
As I have been doing for a few years, as we get into the awards season, I’ll post the fictional ballots for some of the guild awards, showing what my vote would be if I had one. I will, as a rule, abstain from my fictional vote if I haven’t seen at least half of the nominees. And to be perfectly clear, I’m not a member of any of these guilds and organizations.
The list of nominees can be seen here.
Here it goes:
Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures:
Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk
War films usually have a very particular grammar, which in the case of Dunkirk
is abandoned. It was a risky move, but one that paid off: the film is a success both commercially and stylistically. (Not seen: I, Tonya
, Lady Bird
, Molly’s Game
, The Post
, The Shape of Water
, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures: abstain (Not seen The Boss Baby, Despicable Me 3, Ferdinand, The Lego Batman Movie.)
Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Pictures: abstain (The seven nominated films were not seen)
