The 2015 Producers Guild of America Awards will take place on January 24th in Los Angeles. In the meantime, however, nominees in several categories have been announced, and some digital series are gaining recognition outside of the “Outstanding Digital Series” category.
Unsurprisingly, Netflix’s “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black” are getting the TV show treatment, showing up in the categories for best TV drama and comedy, respectively. Meanwhile, the producer of Netflix’s original documentary film “Virunga” is also in the PGA’s running in the documentary theatrical motion picture category.
As for the digital series on the PGA’s radar, here are the nominees for the top digital series from the past year:
“COSMOS: A National Geographic Deeper Dive” (National Geographic)
“Epic Rap Battles Of History” (Maker Studios)
“Video Game High School” Season 3 (Rocket Jump Studios, Collective Digital Studio)
