The Producers Guild of America Friday unveiled the nominees in three specialty television categories for its 34th annual awards show, bestowing nods for sports, children’s and short-form programs.

Winners will be announced during Nominee Events held by the guild in Los Angeles and New York during the week of Feb. 19. The 34th annual PGA Awards ceremony will be held Feb. 25.

The PGA nominees for theatrical motion pictures, animated theatrical motion pictures, TV series/specials and TV/streamed films will be announced Jan. 12.

The PGA Award is traditionally a strong predictor of which film will win the best picture Oscar. Since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expanded from five to 10 nominees in 2010, only four films have won the best picture Oscar without first winning the PGA Award.

The Award for Outstanding Sports Program

— “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” (Season 4)
