The Producers Guild of America has announced the key dates and timeline for the org’s 2022 Producers Guild of America Awards. Celebrating its 33rd awards ceremony, the PGA Awards will return to an in-person event at the Century Plaza Hotel — newly renovated and reopened as the Fairmont Century Plaza — on Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022.

That places this year’s PGA Awards a day before the 28th annual SAG Awards (Sunday, February 27, 2022) and a month before the 94th Oscars (Sunday, March 27, 2022).

Returning to the PGA Awards in 2022 will be signature honors including the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television, Visionary Award and Milestone Award. Those honors were put on hold this past year due to the virtual nature of the event, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Also returning is the third annual PGA Innovation Award, handed out to “the production of a noteworthy, impactful new media program that significantly elevates the audience’s viewing experience.” Key dates and details for the Innovation Award will be announced at a later date.

And back this upcoming awards season will be PGA East and West Coast celebrations of 2022 Producers Guild Awards nominees and producing teams. The events will take place the week of February 20, with further details announced at a later date.

The PGA Awards recognize “the producers who have created an undeniable impact on the producing profession.” In 2021, producing teams behind TV and films including “Nomadland,” “Soul,” “My Octopus Teacher,” “The Crown,” “Schitt’s Creek,” “The Queen’s Gambit,” “The Last Dance,” “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “Hamilton” were honored.
