Everything Everywhere, the Oscar leader with 11 nominations, only added to its awards-season momentum by winning the PGA’s marquee Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. The nominees list also included Warner Bros’ Elvis, Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick, and Disney’s Avatar: The Way of Water and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
