On Wednesday, the Producers Guild of America announced nominees for five television awards. Just as the guild follows the motion picture academy's eligibility period by considering films released during the 2011 calendar year, so too it heeds to the TV academy's schedule and nominates programs airing between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011.

Three-time Emmy winner "Modern Family" defends its PGA title against three-time PGA winner "30 Rock," two-time PGA champ "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returning nominee "The Big Bang Theory" and category newcomer "Louie." All but the last of these shows were in the running at this year's Emmys. 

Five of the six Emmy nominees for top drama series are also in contention for the PGA prize: Reigning PGA champ "Boardwalk Empire" faces off against Emmy winner "Homeland" as well as three-time PGA and four-time Emmy champ "Mad Men," "Downton Abbey," which won Best TV Movie/Miniseries last year at both the Emmys and PGA Awards and returning nominee "Game of Thrones." 

Among non-fiction programming, "American Masters" defends its title against 2010 PGA champ "The Deadliest Catch," returning nominee "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" and newcomers "Inside the Actors Studio" and "Shark Tank." 

Last year's live entertainment/talk winner "The Colbert Report" is up against returning nominees "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Saturday Night Live" and newcomers "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." 

Nine-time Emmy winner "The Amazing Race" contends against 2010 Emmy winner "Top Chef,"  "Dancing With the Stars," "Project Runway" and "The Voice."  

The nominees for top TV movie or mini-series will be announced along with the film contenders on Jan. 3. The 24th annual PGA Awards will be handed out on Jan. 26 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
