Nomadland wins large at Producers Guild of America Awards


Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland continued its impressive run at this year’s award ceremonies with the American drama picking up the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the 32nd annual Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards. The victory comes right after the film’s impressive run through the movie awards season. Nomadland previously won the Golden Globe and the Critics Choice Awards and again on Wednesday night won the Zanuck Award. It is also up for six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Adapted Screenplay and Best Editing. Nomadland is looking to become the 22nd film in 32 years to win the PGA and the Best Picture Oscar. Last year, Sam Mendes’ 1917 took away Zanuck Award, but Parasite took the Best Picture award at the Oscars.

Other winners declared at the virtual ceremony included the Oscar-nominated film Soul in the Animated Film category. Schitt’s Creek in the Danny Thomas Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television – Comedy category. —IANS

PGA honours Irrfan Khan…

… but misspells his name

The 2021 edition of the Producer’s Guild of America (PGA) Awards honoured the late Indian star Irrfan Khan during its In Memoriam segment but got his name wrong. The actor’s name read ‘Irrif Kahn’ instead of Irrfan Khan. —PTI
