2018 PGA Awards report: ‘The Shape of Water’ wins Best Picture against tough field of 11 contenders
The 2018 Producers Guild Awards were handed out on Saturday night, January 20. These awards celebrate the best producing achievements in film and television, and the big-screen winners often give us an idea of who will take top honors at the Oscars. Scroll down for our live updating report on the night’s winners and what it means for the awards season to come. Check out the complete list of winners in all 12 categories here.

The very first Best Picture winner at the PGA Awards was “Driving Miss Daisy” in 1990. That film went on to win the top Oscar, and in total 19 out of the PGA’s 28 previous picks have gone on to claim Best Picture honors at the Academy Awards (68%). And in the last 10 years the correlation has been even stronger, with the two groups agreeing eight times (80%). However, the last two years have been anomalies. In 2016 “The Big Short” won

PGA Honorees Sound Off on Risk, Reward and Storytelling

PGA Honorees Sound Off on Risk, Reward and Storytelling
Ava DuVernay, Ryan Murphy, and Charles Roven will all be honored at the Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 20.

Ava DuVernay

Visionary Award

DuVernay, the guild’s Visionary Award honoree, first picked up a movie camera 13 years ago. She was 32.

Since then the L.A. native has completed three narrative features, with the fourth on its way, and two feature-length documentaries, picking up Academy Awards nominations for “Selma” and “13th.” In her spare time she created a television series called “Queen Sugar.” Her upcoming fourth narrative, Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” makes her the first African-American woman to direct a film budgeted above $100 million.

“There was no thought in my head when I started that [my career] would ever become this,” DuVernay says. But all the success in a short period of time has not gone to the filmmaker’s head. In part that’s because DuVernay spent 14 years working as an entertainment publicist.

Netflix has cast Mad Men and Feud actress Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in their untitled Riverdale companion series. The series is based on the graphic novel series called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and the actress seems like the perfect choice to play the character. It was previously revealed:

Sabrina reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft. It's described as in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

Golden Globe Nominee Jessica Lange on Aging in Hollywood, Feud's Message About Feminism
At 68 years old, Jessica Lange is seemingly in the prime of her career — but she knows that’s not common in Hollywood.

“Women are viewed as a commodity more so than male actors,” Lange told People in March. “At a certain age women are no longer considered a viable or a valuable part of the community — even if that’s when they may feel like they’re at the top of their game. And that’s not just in Hollywood.”

Lange explored those themes in her TV series Feud: Bette and Joan, in which she starred as aging screen legend

Here's an Update on American Horror Story and All the Other Upcoming Ryan Murphy Shows

Here's an Update on American Horror Story and All the Other Upcoming Ryan Murphy Shows
Ryan Murphy is probably the busiest man on all of television.  The executive producer of American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Feud, 911, Pose, Ratched, and probably a few more was on hand during FX's winter press tour for multiple panels for multiple shows, and he even took a second to spill even more on shows he wasn't there to panel. Honestly, we don't know how this man sleeps or has any idea what's going on inside his own head.  To help you (and maybe him) keep track of his many shows both current and future, we've compiled the updates he gave during the 2018 press tour on everything that's in the pipeline. There's even a small American Horror Story tease in there,...

Disney-Fox Deal Unleashes Flood of Free-Agent Executives, Talent

Disney-Fox Deal Unleashes Flood of Free-Agent Executives, Talent
Disney’s $52.4 billion deal to scoop up most of 21st Century Fox marks the beginning of an historic realignment of Hollywood’s Big Six studios. It may also lead to an industry-shaking redistribution of executive and creative talent.

Rarely has such a large number of high-level executives suddenly become free agents, from Stacey Snider and Emma Watts on the 20th Century Fox film side to TV heavyweights John Landgraf, Dana Walden, and Gary Newman — not to mention 21st Century Fox president Peter Rice, who oversees all TV.

Beyond the boldface names, there are ranks of seasoned executives at Fox and Disney/ABC who are nervous about their future, after hearing Disney’s promise of delivering $2 billion in cost savings within two years of the deal’s closing. But this flood is also hitting at a time when Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and other upstarts are beefing up their operations as they launch the push into the content

Susan Sarandon Proves Why TV Is the Right Place to Be (Exclusive)

Susan Sarandon Proves Why TV Is the Right Place to Be (Exclusive)
Susan Sarandon is no stranger to television.

In fact, the longtime actress starred in several TV films early in her career. But outside of a handful of notable recurring roles, Sarandon, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 1995 for Dead Man Walking, had never starred on a series until 2017, when she portrayed Bette Davis in Ryan Murphy’s new FX anthology series, Feud, which launched with Bette and Joan. It seemed like a role that Sarandon was destined to play, with her likeness often having been compared to that of Davis.

Yet, portraying the Hollywood legend -- an opportunity she’d been offered time and time before -- wasn’t something Sarandon was keen to do, especially when the scripts she read were nothing more than “bitchy one-liners.” “It’s not enough to think Bette Davis is cool,” the actress told Et earlier this year. “What do you do with her then?

Disney/Fox Deal: How The Battle to Beat Netflix Starts Today, What Happens to the Fox Network, And Other Burning Questions

  • Indiewire
Rupert Murdoch is cashing out. The idea of 21st Century Fox being consumed by Disney in a $52.4 billion all-stock deal has shocked Hollywood, where industry players never thought they’d see the powerful Fox behemoth be largely consumed, rather than do the consuming. But as one insider noted, Murdoch is looking toward his final legacy — and turning in his chips while the getting’s good.

“Rupert is 86. He’s looking toward setting up [his family],” one observer said. The industry is rapidly changing, and as the Disney deal currently values the 21st Century Fox assets at more than $66 billion, it’s probably never going to get better than that. Fox shareholders, including the Murdochs, could hold around 25 percent of a new mega-Disney, which will now be supremely positioned to face off with Netflix and other giants in the new media landscape.

The Murdochs got their start in the newspaper business, so it

The Screen Actors Guild will stand with women at its 24th annual awards ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, women will present each statuette at the January 21 event. This gesture is SAG’s way of supporting women in the wake of the myriad sexual harassment and assault stories that have come out of Hollywood in the past couple months. “The Good Place’s” Kristen Bell will also serve as the SAG Awards’ first-ever host.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards Ep Kathy Connell explained. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

Of course, men will not be entirely absent from the ceremony. The male SAG winners will take the stage to accept their honors and it
