Producers Guild Awards Announces Television Series Nominees Including MODERN FAMILY, GAME OF THRONES, DEXTER, and More

     December 7, 2011

With awards season in full swing, the Producers Guild of America has just announced the television series nominees for the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards which will be announced on January 21, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In the comedy category, I can’t believe a show with such inconsistent writing quality as Glee beats out something like Community, but there you have it. There’s still some deserving nominations with Modern Family and Parks and Recreation though. On the dramatic side of things Game of Thrones gets some well-earned loved for their first season and both Mad Men and Dexter continue their collection of accolades. For the rest of the nominees in each category as well as talk shows, competition shows and non-fictions shows, hit the jump.

  • Mido

    Why no awards attention for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia?!

  • Chiquinho

    Where in the hell is Breaking Bad?????…

  • J

    I like Mad Men, but it hasn’t aired since October 17, 2010. It’s almost 2012 now. So what’s the time frame for eligibility here? And I think Breaking Bad should be in its slot considering.

      Breaking Bad is ineligible this year. PGA follows same eligibility schedule as Emmy’s.

    and the winner should be Breaking Bad… I guess I could settle for Game of Thrones since Dexter seems like its been written by a team of orangutans.

  • Tarek

    Breaking Bad is 1000 times bettre than all tose shows reunited.

    I’m sorry about what is happening to Dexter. the Episode 8 and 9 were awful! too much Deus ex machina. soooo badly written.

    what’s wrong with you guys ?

      Like I said. Breaking Bad is not eligible this year because it follows the same schedule as the emmy’s. Breaking Bad wasn’t nominated at the Emmy’s also this past year because they didn’t air any new episodes. However, Breaking Bad was just nominated for the Writers Guild Awards because they follow a different eligibility schedule, and I’m sure it will win.
