Laurel noms announced

Producers for five of this year’s hottest pix and nine TV shows, including “Schindler’s List,””The Piano,””Seinfeld” and “NYPD Blue,” are up for Golden Laurel awards, the Producers Guild of America announced Wednesday.

The Golden Laurels, which honor producers in TV and features, will be given out March 2 at a bash at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Nominated for the Darryl F. Zanuck Theatrical Motion Picture Producer of the Year Award are Arnold Kopelson for “The Fugitive,” Jim Sheridan for “In the Name of the Father,” Jan Chapman for “The Piano,” Mike Nichols, John Calley and Ismail Merchant for “The Remains of the Day,” and Steven Spielberg, Gerald R. Molen and Branko Lustig for “Schindler’s List.”

TV shows nominated for the Norman Felton TV Producer ofthe Year Award were “And the Band Played On,””Gypsy,””Home Improvement,””Law and Order,””NYPD Blue, “”Picket Fences,””The Larry Sanders Show,””Seinfeld” and “To Dance With the White Dog.”

According to the Producers Guild, names of the TV producers are not normally announced until a winner has been chosen because the producers for series often vary from episode to episode.

The guild will also give a David O. Selznick Lifetime Achievement Award for features and the David Susskind Lifetime Achievement Award in TV. Nova Awards will go to the most promising producers of pix and TV.

Last year’s winners were Stephen Woolley for “The Crying Game” in features, and Ian Sander and David Chase for “I’ll Fly Away” in TV.
