The acclaimed documentaries "American Factory" and "Apollo 11" are among the 2019 contenders for the Producers Guild of America's theatrical documentary award.  The nominations were revealed Tuesday.

"American Factory," the story of a Chinese company that set up shop at the site of a former Dayton, Ohio-area auto plant, is the first release by Higher Ground Productions -- the company created by former U.S. president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle. The documentary, which is currently streaming on Netflix, was directed by Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert. At the fourth annual Critics' Choice Awards earlier in the month, they shared top directing honors with Peter Jackson of "They Shall Not Grow Old."  

"Apollo 11," Todd Douglas Miller's reconstruction of the events surrounding the first manned moon landing in 1969, won five prizes earlier this month -- including Best Documentary Feature -- at the Critics' Choice ceremony.

The other documentaries nominated by the PGA:

  • "Advocate" --  Directed by Philippe Bellaiche and Rachel Leah Jones, this film focuses on the life and work of Jewish-Israeli attorney Lea Tsemel. She has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years.
  • "The Cave" -- The Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad, who received a 2017 Oscar nomination for his documentary "Last Man in Aleppo,” returned to his homeland for another tale of the civil war there. The new film revolves around an underground hospital and the doctors and nurses who care for patients wounded in the conflict. The documentary won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.
  • "For Sama" -- Directed by Waad al-Khateaband and Edward Watts, this film takes a look at the Syrian civil war from al-Khateab's perspective during a five-year period in Aleppo. The film won audience and jury prizes from SXSW and the Golden Eye at Cannes.
  • "Honeyland" --  Directed by Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov, this is a portrait of a female beekeeper in Macedonia. The production received three awards at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
  • "One Child Nation" -- Nanfu Wang and Zhang Lynn's film examines the effects of China's one-child policy. The film won a jury prize at Sundance, as well as the grand jury prize at the Film Frame Documentary Festival. 

The 31st annual PGA Awards will be presented on January 18, 2019 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Why Hasn’t Tom Hanks Been Oscar Nominated Since 2001?

Interesting that they should mention his performance in THE LADYKILLERS as "not going well"; it is actually one of my favorites of his. I've always liked Hanks and he is one of the few modern-era actors whose films I will try to see because he is in them.

People should remember that Katharine Hepburn won her first Best Actress Oscar for the 1933 drama "Morning Glory" -- but didn't win her second until she was recognized for 1967's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." And Meryl Streep's two Best Actress wins -- for "Sophie's Choice" (1982) and "The Iron Lady" (2011) -- were 29 years apart.

Unlike Hanks, both were nominated many times for Academy Awards between their wins. Hanks didn't have to wait long for his second Oscar. He won back to back awards for "Philadelphia" (1993) and "Forrest Gump" (1994).

Tom Hanks just found out this weekend that he's related to Mister Rogers. The two are sixth cousins, according to Ancestry.
 
Hanks says he didn't know about the connection when he took a role as the children's TV host in an upcoming film.

"Marriage Story" director Noah Baumbach and his stars Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern and Alan Alda were not nominated in major categories Wednesday for the 35th annual Film Independent Spirit Awards. But attention will be paid to them at the February awards show because the filmmaker and his cast will receive the Robert Altman Award.

The honor, which has been presented since 2007 for excellence by a film ensemble, also goes to casting directors -- in this case, Douglas Aibel and Francine Maisler. Other "Marriage Story" cast members eligible for the award: Julie Hagerty, Ray Liotta, Azhy Robertson and Merritt Wever.

"Marriage Story," a divorce tale that has been touted as a major awards season contender, also received Spirit Award nominations for Best Feature and Best Screenplay (Baumbach, pictured below with Alda, Dern and Driver).

The film will begin streaming on Netflix next month.

#AFIFEST #RichardJewell is #ClintEastwood's best film in years, cartoony lady reporter aside. Energetic, impressively staged, surefooted drama and crafty humor. Behaviorally credible, moving work from #PaulWalterHauser. #SamRockwell is endlessly entertaining without seeming fake

#SonMother starts out as another, exquisitely made look at how hard women have it in #Iran's Islamic state, then goes in a bracing, tense & heartbreaking other direction. Talented 1st time director #MahnazMohammadi couldn't make it to @AFIFEST since Iran's under lockdown all week

It would be her second. She was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1983 drama "Cross Creek," based on Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' 1942 memoir. Mary Steenburgen starred as the Florida-based author.

And she was really good there too. That whole lineup that year was top-notch.... even though it seems surprising in retrospect that only one person was nominated from The Big Chill.

Woodard also has been amazing on television. She has won four Primetime Emmy Awards since the 1980s. And she's played characters as diverse as a mother charged with neglecting her slain child in "Hill Street Blues" and the POTUS in the short-lived NBC political series "State of Affairs."

Troubled journalist gets gently persistent advice and taught a little meditation by #TomHanks' cleverly odd #MisterRogers Sony_A_Beautiful_Day_in_the_Neighborhood in #ABeautifulDayInTheNeighborhood Sony_A_Beautiful_Day_in_the_Neighborhood. It's essentially a male weepie, made well enough by director #MarielleHeller. Personally, Rogers is not my idea of a guru
