The nominations for the 2021 Producers Guild Awards were announced today and something we noticed was that Margot Robbie was left off the list, despite her movie Promising Young Woman receiving a nomination.
Margot and her husband Tom Ackerley were both lead producers on the movie, though neither of them received credit alongside the other producers.
The four producers who were nominated for the Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures award are Josey McNamara, Ben Browning, Ashley Fox, and Emerald Fennell.
The rules for the PGA Awards states that, “the PGA shall, in accordance with the 93rd Annual Academy Awards of Merit, designate three or fewer producers as eligible nominees, though it reserves the right to name any additional qualified producer as a nominee.”
It’s likely that Margot and Tom decided to step back and campaigned for all four of their fellow producers to be nominated instead of them.
Promising Young Woman seems to be a likely nominee for Best Picture at the Oscars and many people thought that Margot was on her way to her third Oscar nomination, but now this seems unlikely.
