Ace Eddie, PGA, and SAG awards chime in to support “Hidden Figures” and “La La Land”

Over the weekend, the guilds really chimed in with their awards, potentially shaping the Oscar race in a big way. We saw the Ace Eddie, the Producers Guild of America, and the Screen Actors Guild hold their ceremonies, each of which impacted things, to one degree or another. As always, Ace, PGA, and SAG have some of the most direct crossover with Academy members, so what they think does hold water. Are any one of them the be all, end all? No, but they cumulatively represent a lot of what potential Oscar voters are thinking at the moment. So, you must give them credence. The big winner of the weekend was La La Land, though Hidden Figures has now created some interesting new dynamics to the race. That film took advantage of La La Land not being in SAG’s Best Ensemble lineup, beating out Moonlight for the prize. La La Land

Last night, the Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced this year's winning motion picture, television, and new media productions at the 28th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Closing the evening, the film La La Land and its producers Fred Berger, Jordan Horowitz, and Marc Platt won the PGA's Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.

'La La Land' wins PGA 2017 award
Musical cements status as Oscar frontrunner.

Fred Berger, Jordan Horowitz and Marc Platt performed what looked very much like a rehearsal for another awards show at Saturday’s 28th annual Producers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills.

The La La Land producers beat out a strong field that included Arrival, Moonlight, Fences, Manchester By The Sea and Lion to claim the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.

Given the track record of the PGA Awards as a bellwether of Academy Awards success, Berg, Horowitz and Platt have three hands on the biggest prize of them all heading into Oscar night on February 26.

While the best picture Oscar winner and the PGA’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award winner are often one and the same, last year’s PGA champion The Big Short lost to Spotlight on Oscar night.

The Winners Of The 27th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards

The Producers Guild of America has just finished handing out there awards with an extremely disappointing result: Adam McKay’s forgettable, didactic banking manual of a film known as The Big Short has taken the top prize, meaning it is now the frontrunner for the Best Picture Oscar.

As you know, the PGA and the Academy have agreed on the best film of the year 19 out of 26 times, including the last eight years in a row, but there’s still hope. The Big Short was only nominated for five Oscars, and is only in the lead for two of them, while the other three categories rest firmly with other frontrunners. The last film to win Best Picture with only five nominations was The Departed, but this is clearly not something of that caliber.
