The Artist Wins PGA Award, Likely to Win Best Picture Oscar

The Producers Guild of America announced the winners of its theatrical motion picture and TV nominations for the 2012 PGA Awards. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (marked in red) below. This year's big winner was "The Artist," which means that the silent film will likely also go on to win the Oscar for Best Pictures since the PGA Awards predict the Academy Award winner about 75% of the time. In the animation category, Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" won, beating out "Rango" and "Cars 2." On television, "Modern Family" was chosen as the best comedy and "Boardwalk Empire" as the best drama.

Producers Guild Honors ‘The Artist’ As Best Film of 2011; Best Picture Oscar to Follow?

  • Slash Film
Last night the Producers Guild of America (PGA) gave out awards for achievement in films and television released in 2011. The big winner was The Artist, which took home the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. As the winner of this award takes the Best Picture Oscar three times out of four, any betting on the top Oscar honor is pretty much over at this point. Read on for the full list of winners. The PGA website provides the list. In each case I've left the full slate of nominees, and winners are bolded. I'm happy to see the excellent A Tribe Calle Quest doc, Beats, Rhymes and Life, picking up the award for best documentary. The Darryl F.

Oscars: “The Artist” takes top Producers Guild prize – Analysis – Awards Alley

By Sean O’Connell

hollywoodnews.com: It’s beginning to look a bit like a landslide. The Producers Guild of America is the latest group to reward Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” with its year-end Best Picture honors, paving the way for what could be Oscar domination next month.

The black-and-white and predominantly silent film has been picking up top prizes throughout the season, winning Best Picture awards at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Golden Globes. On accepting the PGA distinction, producer Thomas Langmann said that when they “dreamed of making ‘The Artist,’ we knew we were dreaming of writing a love letter to American cinema.”

Oscar nominations arrive on Tuesday morning, and “The Artist” is expected to lead all films with the most nominations. It’s best to caution against landslide victories in what amounts to “the primaries.” Last year, David Fincher’s “The Social Network” did very

2012 Producers Guild Award Winners: 'The Artist' and 'Tintin' Take Home the Honors

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced the winners of their 2012 awards tonight and The Artist keeps on rolling while the animated contenders got a bit of a shake-up. The Adventures of Tintin earned its second big win in less than a week after winning at the Golden Globes last weekend as it took home the producer of the year award for Best Animated Feature tonight. Does this mean Rango is now on the ropes? More on that in a second... Of the more than 5,000 members of the Producers Guild, only 446 of them are members of the Academy, but, despite the number discrepancy, you can rest assured their declaring The Artist a winner tonight is a big deal. Since first handing out the award in 1990, 14 of the 21 PGA Producer of the Year winners have gone on to win Best Picture at the Oscars with the last four winners matching exactly.

Universal Pictures Kristen Wiig in “Bridesmaids

The movies “Bridesmaids,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Midnight in Paris” were among the nominees announced today for the 2012 Producers Guild Awards.

The awards, which go to TV and film producers, often help forecast the Oscar nominees and winners.

The fact that “Bridesmaids” made the list is an indication that the light comedy may be in the running for some major nominations when the Oscars roll around. A number of expected movies,

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced their nominees for best motion picture and television productions, including "The Artist," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and the comedy "Bridesmaids."

Producers Guild Award Nominations Include Nods For ‘The Artist,’ ‘The Descendants,’ and ‘Midnight in Paris’

  • Slash Film
Here's your best indicator yet as to what the crop of nominations for the Best Picture Oscar is likely to be. The Producers Guild of America (PGA) has announced its nominations for 2011 awards, which will be doled out on January 21. The ten films nominated for the PGA's top honor include expected pictures such as The Artist, The Descendants and War Horse. There are no real surprises, but the growing Oscar chances for The Help won't be hurt by getting a PGA nomination (would be slightly wild to see Chris Columbus, a producer on The Help, with an Oscar), and Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris makes an appearance on the list, too. There are a couple surprises, though, in the form of Bridesmaids and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo -- the Judd Apatow and Scott Rudin effects in full force there. With 5-10 Best Picture nominations possible for this year's Oscars,

Producers Guild Top 10: 'Dragon Tattoo,' 'Ides of March' in; 'Tree of Life' out
The Producers Guild of America has announced its 10 nominees for Best Picture of the Year, and along with expected contenders like The Artist, War Horse, The Descendants, The Help, and Hugo were two minor surprises: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Ides of March. Left off the list, meanwhile, were Drive, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and most interestingly, The Tree of Life. That polarizing film, which has done well in the critics awards so far, clearly takes the biggest hit in the overall Oscar race and is no longer a sure thing for a Best Picture nomination.

'Bridesmaids' and 'Dragon Tattoo' Make Nominee List for the 2012 Producers Guild Awards

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced their 2011 nominees this morning and I can't say I'm entirely surprised by the films nominated as seven of them are among my top contenders to be nominated for Best Picture -- The Artist, The Descendants, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball and War Horse -- but a couple of unlikely contenders have found their way into the mix as well. First off, I have David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ranked #13 on my Best Picture preditions, but a nomination from the PGA definitely gives it a bump, but more importantly is the inclusion of the Universal comedy, Bridesmaids, which has definitely made a move as of late with Universal making a big push for the feature and perhaps it's high time I added it to my list of potential Best Picture nominees.

'Game of Thrones,' 'Big Bang Theory,' 'Idol' score Producers Guild TV nominations

Tyrion Lannister, Don Draper, Alicia Florrick, Dexter Morgan and Nucky Thompson will battle it out for the title of best-produced drama on television.

The Producers Guild of America has announced the TV series nominees for its 23rd annual awards, and while the characters listed above won't personally fight for the honor, their shows will. "Game of Thrones," "Mad Men," "The Good Wife," "Dexter" and "Boardwalk Empire" are this year's nominees; "Mad Men" is the defending champ.

In the episodic comedy category, last year's winner, "Modern Family," is up for the award again. The other nominees are "30 Rock," "The Big Bang Theory," "Glee" and "Parks and Recreation."

If you notice a lack of new series among the nominees, it's because the eligibility window for series ran from June 1, 2010 to May 31 of this year. That also explains why "Mad Men," which hasn't aired this year, is on the list, but "Breaking Bad,

With awards season in full swing, the Producers Guild of America has just announced the television series nominees for the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards which will be announced on January 21, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In the comedy category, I can't believe a show with such inconsistent writing quality as Glee beats out something like Community, but there you have it. There's still some deserving nominations with Modern Family and Parks and Recreation though. On the dramatic side of things Game of Thrones gets some well-earned loved for their first season and both Mad Men and Dexter continue their collection of accolades. For the rest of the nominees in each category as well as talk shows, competition shows and non-fictions shows, hit the jump.

The Producers Guild of America announced today its 23rd annual PGA Awards nominees. Several fan favorite shows made the list (I was surprised Showtime’s Homeland didn’t make the cut, but then checked the rules — a show needs to have aired at least half its episodes by May 31, 2011 … which also means the amazing recent season of AMC’s Breaking Bad wasn’t in the running either). Here are the nominees:

Discord Between PGA And WGA TV Noms The Producers Guild of America just announced the Television Series nominees for the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards. The list includes the usual suspects, last year’s winners Modern Family and Mad Men. In fact, all 5 nominees in the comedy, drama and reality competition series were also nominated in the categories at the Emmy Awards. But a quirk in the eligibility period, which matches that of the Primetime Emmy Awards (June 1, 2010-May 31, 2011) rendered such acclaimed series as AMC’s Breaking Bad, HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and Showtime’s new drama Homeland ineligible.
