The Producers Guild of America announced the winners of its 34th PGA Awards on Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with “Everything Everywhere All at Once” taking the guild’s top movie honors, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award.

The group’s choice has historically been considered a strong prognosticator for the best picture Oscar, with last year’s pick of “CODA” and the previous winner “Nomadland” as the latest examples to go on and win the Academy Award.

“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio” took the animated film honors, while “Navalny” was awarded the top documentary prize. In the television section, “The White Lotus” and “The Bear” topped the drama and comedy series categories, respectively.

The nonprofit organization has more than 8,000 members and last year elected Stephanie Allain, a former executive at 20th Century Fox and Columbia Pictures, as president alongside former Paramount Pictures President Donald De Line. Allain is the first woman of color to hold the position.

The complete list of winners is below.

The Producers Guild announced its slate of 10 nominees Thursday, the day after the Directors Guild and Screen Actors Guild weighed in. Here’s a look at the best picture Oscar race, running down the films that the PGA honored.
