The Producers Guild of America has shifted some of its key dates for the upcoming 32nd annual Producers Guild of America Awards, which will remain on March 24 in a virtual format.

The awards season has been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in the Academy Awards being pushed back to April 25 with an eligibility period through the end of February.

Sam Mendes’ war drama “1917” won the top prize at the 2020 awards show in January. The PGA, which represents more than 8,000 members, announced Thursday a variety of date changes from what was revealed on Sept. 30 — with most deadlines now about a week earlier.

Below is a summary of the changes:

Announcement of Nominees for Documentary Feature Film — move from Thurs., Feb. 11 to Tues., Feb. 2.
Close of Nomination Polls for Theatrical Motion Pictures, Animated Motion Pictures, Television Series/Specials, Televised/Streamed Motion Pictures — move from Thurs., March 11 to Sun. March 7 at 2 p.m.
Announcement of Nominees for Theatrical Motion Pictures, Animated Motion Pictures, Television Series/Specials, Televised/Streamed Motion Pictures– move from Fri., March 12 to Mon., March 8
Opening of Final Polls for Documentary Motion Pictures, Theatrical Motion Pictures, Animated Motion Pictures, TV Series/Specials, Televised/Streamed Motion Pictures — move from Fri., March 12 to Mon., March 8
The Guild will share additional information about eligibility dates for the Innovation Award, as well as its annual PGA East and West Coast Celebrations of 2021 Producers Guild Awards nominees and producing teams at a later date.
