Producers Guild Awards Pushed to March Over COVID-Concerns
Art and Experience:
The 2022 Producers Guild Awards is the latest event to be postponed amid the surge in COVID-19 cases and the omicron variant, the Producers Guild of America has announced.
The new ceremony will take place on March 19 at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. It was originally scheduled for Feb. 26.
Attendees for the ceremony will need to provide proof of vaccination and booster, if eligible, and a recent negative COVID-19 test.
Nominations for the children’s, sports and short-form categories will now be announced on Tuesday, January 18. The winners in those categories will be announced at the PGA Awards’ nominee celebrations in Los Angeles and New York during the week of March 15. Previously announced dates, including eligibility, voting windows and future nominations announcements, will remain the same.
The announcement of the new date comes after other awards shows, including the Critics Choice Awards and Grammys, were also postponed. The Critics Choice Awards, announced just hours before the Producers Guild Awards were delayed, will now take place on March 13, a little over two months after the initial date of Jan. 9. The Critics Choice Awards now share the same date as the BAFTA Awards. The Grammys, which were set to take place on Jan. 31, were postponed indefinitely, with a new date to be announced at a later time. Insiders suggest the 2022 Grammys will move to April or May.
The 2022 PGA Awards are produced by Anchor Street Collective, with Branden Chapman as executive producer, Carleen Cappelletti as co-executive producer, Matt Ullian and Jane Sarkin of Bold
