The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced the winners of their annual contest last night at a gala ceremony in Beverly Hills.  In a shock to some, the expected winner and top film on our Awards Leaderboard, The Power of the Dog, lost to the feel-good favorite CODA. CODA’s win was unexpected in the punditry, but as films like Belfast and King Richard faded, CODA saw a rise in sentiment following its win for Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The PGAs are a fairly reliable indicator of Oscar Best Picture potential, so this late-season twist indicates we are in for an exciting final stretch of the Oscar season, with the biggest prize still very much still up for grabs.

On the television side, Ted Lasso and Succession were the big winners and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s Summer of Soul rebounded from a DGA loss last weekend to win Best Documentary. Read on for the full list of PGA Awards winner below.
