Here is my best explanation:

'producer' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'new art genre accepts oscar' is the subsidiary indication.

'new' indicates an anagram.

'accepts' is an insertion indicator.

'oscar' becomes 'o' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.).

'art'+'genre'='artgenre'

'artgenre' anagrammed gives 'generatr'.

'generatr' placed around 'o' is 'generator'.

'of' is the link.
