The Producers Guild of America added a category for animation to their annual PGA Awards, according to AWN. PGA Awards co-chair, Bruce Cohen said, “The recent renaissance in animated features has been one of our industry’s greatest success stories of the past decade, and we feel it’s only appropriate that the Producers Guild follow in the steps of the Motion Picture Academy by recognizing the remarkable quality of these productions with their own competitive category. Feature animation presents a unique set of challenges for even the most skilled producer, and the PGA is proud to recognize the immensely talented practitioners of this form through its new Producer of the Year in Animated Film category”. Nominees for the PGA Awards will be announced on January 4, 2006, with the awards presented at a ceremony on January 22.
