Producers Guild Awards 2023: Full list of winners

The 2023 Producers Guild of America Awards are held underground at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

A strong bellwether for the top Academy Award, seven of this year’s best picture nominations are recognized by the association in the film category: “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “Elvis,” “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” ‘The Fabelmans’, ‘Tár’ and ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.

This marked the first year the PGA recommended four sequels, which also included “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.”

Actor-producer Tom Cruise will be honored with the David O. Selznick Achievement Award, which recognizes a producer or production team for outstanding work in motion pictures. The Selznick Award has a distinguished history with past recipients including legendary producers such as Steven Spielberg, Barbara Broccoli, Mary Parent, Brian Grazer, David Heyman and Kevin Feige.

Four of the five PGA nominees are Oscar nominees on the animated side, in addition to the box office hit “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”

Since 2009, only three films have won at the PGA and not won the Oscar for best picture — “The Big Short” (2015), “La La Land” (2016) and “1917” (2019). Even critically divisive films like “Green Book” (2018) and last year’s shocker “CODA” (2021) proved their mettle with the band before taking home the Oscar statuette.

Final voting for the Oscars begins March 2.

Winners will be notified as they are announced.
