Hey kids, guess what? It’s STILL awards season. Thought you were out of the woods now that Dreamgirls finally hit theaters and everyone could see how stunningly not-awesome much of it is? Ha ha you fool.
Anyway, today, the Producer’s Guild of America — sort of like a less-easily-distracted-by-shiny-things Hollywood Foreign Press Association — announced its nominees, placing Babel, The Departed, Dreamgirls, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Queen (pictured) in the Best Film category. Winners will be announced January 20.
Why should we care extra lots about who wins this sucker? Because the PGA has gotten 11 out of the last 17 Oscar Best Picture winners right. Except for such recent winners as Crash (they went Brokeback). Oh, and Million Dollar Baby (they went Aviator). Have they lost their mojo? Stay tuned.addCredit(“The Queen: Laurie Sparham”)
