Gravity and 12 Years a Slave have TIED the Producer’s Guild of America (PGA)’s “The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures” They just finished announcing their awards and the results are shocking. This is the first tie in PGA history!
It seemed that American Hustle had the lead after winning Best Ensemble on Saturday night at the SAG awards. but now we’re right back to that big split I’ve been talking about.
This is a better outcome that I could’ve ever hoped for, because – as I mentioned before – it keeps the season going with wonderful uncertainty. Whoever wins the DGA next week still might take lead frontrunner status. But even then, this all important PGA tie means that NOTHING will be certain until the final envelope is opened on Oscar night.
THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!
