The PGA Awards nominations are out – spelling bad news for Spider-Man: No Way Home at the Oscars

The Producers Guild of America has announced its nominees for this year’s 33rd PGA Awards. As expected, the likes of Belfast, Don’t Look Up, The Power of the Dog, and West Side Story feature on the list. 

Perhaps the biggest surprise is Amazon’s Being the Ricardos, Aaron Sorkin’s biopic about I Love Lucy star Lucille Ball, managing to gain a nomination despite mixed reviews. However, Nicole Kidman has been winning acclaim for her role, winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama, and the momentum has swung in the movie’s overall favor this awards season.

Tick, Tick … Boom!, Licorice Pizza, King Richard, Dune, and CODA complete the nominations list – those five have all been generally regarded as shoe-ins for nominations.

The PGA Awards are a key indicator when it comes to predicting the eventual Oscar nominees. It’s worth noting, though, that the PGA often nominate big blockbusters that have picked up steam across the year. For instance, previous nominees include A Quiet Place, Wonder Woman, Deadpool, and Skyfall

That all spells bad news for Spider-Man: No Way Home and No Time To Die at the Oscars. The studios behind both movies have been pushing the two cinema-saving stunners this awards season, yet their chances of being nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars now look in jeopardy. Having failed to win over the PGA, it will be an uphill battle for the two films if they want to be in contention this year.
