The Producers Guild of America Awards (PGAs) were announced last night and the presumptive Best Picture Oscar winner Nomadland won for Outstanding Producer of a Theatrical Motion Picture. This latest win reaffirms the film’s position as the favorite for the top Academy Award.

The PGAs have in the past been seen as the indicator of who’s taking home Best Picture winner at the Oscars, as many of the PGA voters also make up a significant voting body in the Academy, and the winners often match. But after choosing 1917 last year when Parasite took home Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and La La Land when Moonlight ended up on top, it is no longer a foregone conclusion that Chloé Zhao’s tale about a woman living in her van to escape financial hardship will go the distance. Sitting atop our awards leaderboard all year and sweeping the major prizes, however, is a pretty good indication.

Elsewhere, the fascinatingly bizarre internet sensation My Octopus Teacher beat out stiff competition to be crowned Outstanding Documentary, while Golden Globe winners The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, and Schitt’s Creek won their respective categories as well. Read on for the full list of PGA Awards winners below!
