‘Schitt’s Creek’, ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Soul’ took home honors.
The Producers Guild of America will be presented Wednesday in a virtual ceremony.
Schitt’s cove won the top award of the night for best television comedy series, earning the honor for its sixth and final season. Star and producer Eugene Levy said to call Schitt’s cove the highlight of his fifty years in the business would be an understatement. “It has been a pleasure working on this show,” Levy said.
Soul won the animated feature film award, with producer Dana Murray crediting the team for finishing the Pixar project at home during the pandemic.
Hamilton, Disney + ‘s theatrical recording of the Broadway hit, won in the televised or broadcast movies category.
“Doing theater is often like writing messages in melting snow,” said producer Thomas Kail. “This was an opportunity for us to do something lasting and indelible that could be shared.”
Last week tonightJohn Oliver accepted the award for live entertainment or talk mocking the fact that the nominees prerecorded their speeches. Oliver said, “I’m filming this anticipating that we might win. If we haven’t won this, please destroy this and convey my congratulations to the real winner, which I assume is Dr. (Mehmet) Oz. A whole year!”
Also on the front of the TV, RuPaul’s Drag Race won the honor of the television game and competition.
Blackish Star Tracee Ellis Ross opened the show by noting that the Zoom affair was an awards ceremony like no one could have imagined.
“It has been a year like no other in modern history. But through all the political, scientific and social clamor for justice, one thing has remained unchanged, the need to be entertained,” Ross said. “That’s what we do as producers and artists. We entertain.”
The ceremony comes a few days after the PGA revealed the winners in some categories during a series of day-long nominee panels organized by the guild: YouTube Defying Gravity: The Untold Story of Women’s Gymnastics was named Outstanding Sports Show, HBO’s The Power of Us: A Sesame Street Special won the best children’s program; Apple tv Carpool Karaoke: The Series Named Best Short Form Program; and the guild’s new Innovation Award went to YouTube’s Burning Man project BRCvr.
