The usual crop of awards contenders made up the list of nominees for the 28th Producers Guild of America Awards, with one very crazy surprise nominee: Deadpool.
The comic adaptation has become a somewhat refreshing shock to the award season, so far, earning multiple Golden Globes nominations and a mention from the Writers Guild.
The PGA is a great precursor to what's to come on Oscar Sunday, having picked the same Oscar Best Picture 19 times in the last 27 years.
The 28th Producers Guild of American Awards will be held January 28, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
