Animated adventure The Incredibles has been nominated for a best film award alongside Oscar contenders Sideways, The Aviator and Million Dollar Baby.
The Incredibles has been a box office success
The Incredibles was an unusual choice by the Producers Guild of America because animated movies are usually ignored for the major awards.
In the TV categories, The West Wing, Will and Grace and Arrested Development have all been nominated.
The awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on 22 January.
Aside from The Incredibles, the other movies nominated for best film have also been chosen by other critics associations and also tipped for Oscar success.
Finding Neverland is the remaining best film nominee.
Sideways, a quirky road trip comedy set in California's wine region, has so far collected the most nominations and wins.
In the TV section, the Producers Guild has selected Angels in America, Something the Lord Made Me and Horatio Hornblower in the long-form category.
Six Feet Under, CSI, Nip/Tuck, The Sopranos and The West Wing will compete in the drama section.
There is also a separate category for reality TV which this year includes Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Inside the Actor's Studios, The Amazing Race 5, The Apprentice and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
In the comedy section are Curb Your Enthusiasm, Scrubs, Sex and the City and Will and Grace.
Hotel Rwanda, a film about the genocide in the African country, will receive the special Stanley Kramer Award.
