Fresh off a win at the Golden Globe Awards, "La La Land" earned a coveted nomination from the Producers Guild of America Awards. The Oscars frontrunner was joined by fellow Golden Globe winner "Moonlight."
In a surprise turn, snarky superhero flick "Deadpool" also landed a nomination. While the PGA nominees don't always line up with Oscar nominees, the unexpected honor gives the Ryan Reynolds movie a big boost.
In the animated feature category, Disney ruled with three nominees: "Finding Dory," "Moana," and Golden Globe winner "Zootopia."
Last year, "The Big Short" won the PGA Award. It went on to lose out on the top Oscar prize to "Spotlight." The PGA Awards will be announced Saturday, Jan. 28.
Here is the full list of nominees.
