The Producers Guild of America’s longstanding campaign to get rid of undeserved credits has gained plenty of traction with its PGA certification mark on 150 movies — triple what it was a year ago.
The PGA has made reining in the volume of producer credits its signature issue since the 1998 Oscar ceremony, where five producers were credited for best-picture winner “Shakespeare in Love.” The Producers Mark — a lower-case “p.g.a.” after a certified producer’s name — was first used on “Lawless” when it screened in May, 2012, at Cannes.
The mark received a major boost over the following year as the six majors — Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros. — agreed to the PGA’s process, aimed at protecting the integrity of the role of the producer by ascertaining who actually performed the producing duties on a film.
