ATCQ’s “Beats, Rhymes & Life” Nominated for Documentary of the Year at Producer’s Guild Awards

(AllHipHop News) On December 2, the Producer’s Guild of America (PGA) announced their 2012 nominees for Best Documentary.

The critically acclaimed, Michael Rapaport directed, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest is one of five documentaries nominated for this year’s awards.

In years past, the PGA has been known to be a great barometer for which films will get nominated and ultimately win at the Oscars which will take place in February of 2012.

However, unfortunately, the Academy did not include Beats, Rhymes & Life in their 15-film shortlist of documentaries nominated for the upcoming Oscars.

There has been some backlash from the Hip-Hop community for the Academy’s snub of the film, yet the PGA nomination is a great achievement for both the filmmaker, the producers, and the members of A Tribe Called Quest.

Along with Beats, Rhymes & Life, other nominated documentaries include: Bill Cunningham New York, Project Nim, Senna, and, The Union.

All other nominations for the 2012 PGAs will be announced on January 3, with the winners being announced and awarded on January 21.

In October, got the opportunity to speak to the documentary’s director, Michael Rapaport, at a special screening during the 2011 CMJ Music & Film Festival.
