‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Among Producers Guild TV Nominations

“Big Little Lies,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” are among the freshman TV series grabbing nominations for the 29th annual Producers Guild Awards.

HBO’s revival of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan,” Apple’s “Carpool Karaoke,” and Netflix’s “Black Mirror” were also recognized by the guild.

The PGA’s drama race puts HBO’s award-magnet “Big Little Lies” in the drama series competition against its own “Game of Thrones,” Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” and Hulu’s “Handmaid’s Tale.” In last year’s Emmy heat, “Big Little Lies” dominated the limited series race, but PGA made the switch now that the project has been ordered for a second installment.

The move of “Big Little Lies” could clear a path for “Feud” to pickup some hardware after competing in the shadow of HBO’s Reese Witherspoon-Nicole Kidman juggernaut. Vying against “Feud” for in the PGA’s long-form television category are FX’s “Fargo,” “Black Mirror,” PBS’ “Sherlock: The Lying Detective” and HBO’s telepic “The Wizard of Lies.”

Amazon’s “Mrs. Maisel” continues to build awards momentum with its nom for comedy series. The period dramedy will face off against HBO’s “Curb,” “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” and “Netflix’s “Master of None.”

Producers Guild nominees for live talk-entertainment series covers the usual suspects: TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
