Pro­duc­ers Guild

The Pro­duc­ers Guild of Amer­ica announced Wednes­day five nom­i­na­tions for the Award for Out­stand­ing Pro­ducer of Ani­mated The­atri­cal Motion Pictures.

Three of the nom­i­nees are prod­ucts of Dis­ney: Brave (Walt Dis­ney Stu­dios Motion Pic­tures), pro­duced by Kather­ine Sarafian; Franken­wee­nie (Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures), pro­duced by Alli­son Abbate and Tim Bur­ton; and Wreck-It Ralph (Walt Dis­ney Stu­dios Motion Pic­tures), pro­duced by Clark Spencer.

Round­ing out the list are Para­Nor­man (Focus Fea­tures), pro­duced by Travis Knight and Ari­anne Sut­ner, and Rise of the Guardians (Para­mount Pic­tures), pro­duced by Nancy Bern­stein and Christina Steinberg.

One of the five nom­i­nees for the Award for Out­stand­ing Children’s Pro­gram, Dis­ney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb, is a car­toon series. It’s vying in the cat­e­gory with the live-action Good Luck Char­lie (Dis­ney Chan­nel), iCarly (Nick­elodeon), Sesame Street (PBS) and The Weight of the Nation for Kids: The Great Cafe­te­ria Takeover (HBO).

All 2013 Pro­duc­ers Guild Award win­ners will be announced Jan­u­ary 26 at the Bev­erly Hilton Hotel. This year, the Pro­duc­ers Guild will also present spe­cial hon­ors to Bob and Har­vey Wein­stein (Mile­stone Award).

In 1990, the Pro­duc­ers Guild held the first-ever Golden Lau­rel Awards, which were renamed the Pro­duc­ers Guild Awards in 2002. Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck took home the award for Best Pro­duced Motion Pic­ture for Dri­ving Miss Daisy, estab­lish­ing the Guild’s awards as a bell­wether for the Oscars. Last year, the PGA awarded The Artist with its Dar­ryl F. Zanuck Pro­ducer of the Year Award in The­atri­cal Motion Pic­tures, mark­ing the fifth con­sec­u­tive year that the Pro­duc­ers Guild has pre­saged the Motion Pic­ture Academy’s choice.
