22nd Producers Guild of America Awards to be produced by Paula Wagner

HollywoodNews.com: The 22nd Annual Producers Guild of America Awards will be produced by veteran producer Paula Wagner, announced today by PGA Presidents Mark Gordon and Hawk Koch. This will be the first involvement with the Producers Guild Awards for Wagner. The 2011 Producers Guild Awards nominations will be announced on January 4th and the ceremony will be held January 22nd at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.
“Paula is an innovative and dynamic producer with some of the most impressive credits in the business. She has tremendous respect and passion for the producing craft, and we’re thrilled she accepted our invitation to produce the 2011 Producers Guild Awards show,” said Gordon and Koch. “We’re confident that with her energy, efforts and vision the Producers Guild Awards will be better than ever.”
“It’s been my privilege to be a member of the producing community for nearly 20 years, and I’m honored to produce the 2011 Producers Guild Awards,” said Wagner. “I continue to be amazed by the producing talent in film, television and new media. I’m thrilled to help recognize this year’s most deserving creative storytellers and to celebrate the necessary art and vital craft of producing.”

The Producers Guild Awards have also honored such legendary producers as Steven Spielberg, Jerry Bruckheimer, Brian Grazer, Steven Bochco, Clint Eastwood, Sherry Lansing, Robert Evans, Roger Corman and Lorne Michaels, among others.
