Kathryn Bigelow wins DGA Award

31 January 2010 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In an historic win, Kathryn Bigelow and her tense Iraq War drama "The Hurt Locker" from Summit Entertainment copped the DGA Award for best-directed feature film Saturday.

The win drew cheers from a packed ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, where throughout the night it was clear many were pulling for Bigelow to deliver a dramatic victory for female filmmakers. The DGA feature film win was a first-ever by a woman.

"This is the most incredible moment of my life," Bigelow said.

Bigelow overcame competition including Fox-distributed "Avatar," directed by her ex-husband James Cameron; Lee Daniels and "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" from Lionsgate; Jason Reitman and "Up in the Air" from Paramount; and Quentin Tarantino and "Inglourious Basterds" from the Weinstein Co.

The DGA's feature-film award is one of the best gauges of likely success in Oscar's best-director category. The Academy Award for directing »

25 January 2010 9:55 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Producers Guild of America gave "The Hurt Locker" the best film award. The Kathryn Bigelow film won over "An Education," "Avatar," "District 9, " "Inglourious Basterds," "Invictus," "Precious," "Star Trek," "Up" and "Up in the Air."

In this competitive and unpredictable awards season, "The Hurt Locker" received an all-important ammo to move on, and perhaps win Best Picture at the Oscars.

For the past 20 years, the winner of the PGA awards has matched the Oscar Best Picture winner including last year's "Slumdog Millionaire."

Here's the complete list of winners and nominees of the 2010 Producers Guild Of America (PGA) Awards:

Darryl F. Zanuck Producer Of The Year Award In Theatrical Motion Pictures:

Sci-Fi Tops Off the 2010 Producers Guild Nominees

5 January 2010 10:48 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Perhaps the biggest surprise with this morning's announcement of the 2010 Producers Guild Nominees is the inclusion of not just Avatar, but the fact both District 9 and Star Trek made their list of ten films vying for the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award.

Along with those three we also have the rest of the Oscar front-runner elite. I have included the complete list below. I'm not sure I would say the winner at the PGA Awards makes for a guaranteed Best Picture winner at the Oscars. Althought the last two Best Picture winners (Slumdog Millionaire and No Country for Old Men) also won the PGA, it's a mixed bag after that with 13 of the 20 Producers Guild winners going on to win the Oscar since 1990.

The complete list of nominees is below and the PGA will announce the winner January 24 in a ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium based on voting by its 4,200 members. »

The Producers Guild of America has chosen ten films as nominees for its Best Picture award. The winner will be announced Jan. 24 at the Hollywood Palladium.

I'm proud to say that besides "A Serious Man," their choices of their 10 film nominees are similar to my Top 10 Best Films of 2009. :happy

The PGA opted to expand their nominees to 10 in response to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences 10 Best Picture nominees.

Oscar watchers take note -- the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award -- has matched the Oscar Best Picture in 13 of its 20 years. So the film that will win the PGA has a strong chance of winning the Oscars.
