Similar to the breakdown in the Critics Choice and Writers Guild awards, the Producers Guild of America announced the nominees for the feature film documentary award separate than the nominees for feature films. Nominees in television will be announced January 3, 2016. Nominees in theatrical motion pictures will be announced January 10, 2016.
These nominees are great prognosticators of things to come in the realm of the Academy Awards, as the branch who votes for the Oscar nominations traditionally makes similar choices. Last year's winner Amy went on to nab the Academy Award.
The most notable of the films nominated is O.J.: Made in America, an eight-hour opus of a film chronicling the rise and fall of the star. ESPN Films produced the picture, which had its premiere at Sundance earlier this year to much critical praise.
The documentary award will presented at the Producers Guild of America Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton on January 29, 2016.
