2019 Oscars calendar: Producers Guild of America Awards on January 19

The Producers Guild of America holds its annual PGA Awards on January 19, three days before the Academy Awards nominations are revealed. Likewise, the nominees for these precursor prizes were announced on Jan. 4, three days before Oscar nominations voting opened.

Unlike the academy, the guild has stuck with a set roster of 10 nominees for Best Picture since 2009. That leeway has helped it maintain a staggering success rate at previewing the eventual roster of Oscar contenders: the guild has predicted 70 of the 81 (i.e., 86.5%) of the Best Picture nominees over the past nine years.

Both groups do use the same system of voting to decide their respective Best Picture winner. By opting for a preferential ballot, the PGA has an outstanding track record at previewing the eventual Oscar winner. The guild and the academy have agreed on 20 of the most recent 29 Best Picture champs, including last year’s double dipper “The Shape of Water.”

Below, we detail these key dates.
