The Banshees Of Inisherin, The Fabelmans and Everything Everywhere All At Once continue to cement their position as award season frontrunners, after all picking up nominations at the Producers Guild of America (PGA).

All three films have already picked up scores of nods for writing, acting and overall production.

On Thursday, the PGA announced the nominations in the motion pictures and television categories for its 34th annual awards, taking place next month.

The Banshees Of Inisherin, The Fabelmans, and Everything Everywhere All At Once all secured a nomination for the PGA’s top award – the Darryl F Zanuck award for outstanding producer of theatrical motion pictures.

They were joined in the category by Avatar: The Way Of Water, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Elvis, Tar, The Whale, Top Gun: Maverick, and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

The Darryl F Zanuck award has historically been considered a strong prognosticator for the Best Picture Oscar each year, according to the PGA.
