Oh yes it still hurts that Ben Affleck was not given a Best Director Oscar nomination, yet his fantastic film "Argo" continues its ascension to Oscar glory! The film took home the top prize at the Producers Guild of America Awards taking home the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.
So guess which film will win the Oscar Best Picture? Yup, it will be "Argo!" Why? Well, Hollywood really loves movies about them and "Argo" is about a movie of a fake movie in order to help free some Americans trapped in Iran during the hostage crisis.
I'm also happy that "Searching for Sugar Man" won the Documentary category, and not so happy »
Earlier this week The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced the nominations for their annual awards for theatrical motion picture, animated motion picture and long-form television nominations for the 2013 Producers Guild Awards.
This was an incredible year for films, and most of the movies nominated here deserve to be. Out of all the films listed here, I'd like to see Zero Dark Thirty or Silver Linings Playbook take the top prize for motion picture, Paranorman for animated film, Game of Thrones for TV drama, and Curb Your Enthusiasm for TV Comedy. In case you missed them, here they are! Look them over and let us know what films you'd like to see win!
Ten nominations in the theatrical motion picture category include:
Argo (Warner Bros.)
Beasts of the Southern Wild (Fox Searchlight)
Django Unchained (The Weinstein Company)
Life of Pi (20th Century Fox)
Les Misérables (Universal)

The awards that have absolutely nothing to do with golf, the PGA (Producers Guild Of America) awards nominations have just been announced over in the USA, and once again a few familiar movies are standing out with voters. Ben Affleck’s Argo and the superb Beasts Of The Southern Wild lead the way, along with Lincoln, my personal fave Silver Linings Playbook and Skyfall also in the offing.
In the animated feature category, Brave, Frankenweenie, Wreck-it-Ralph, Paranorman and Rise Of The Guardians all on the list, while Breaking Bad and Britain’s own Downton Abbey were featured in the TV (Drama) list, and 30 Rock and Curb Your Enhusiasm both in the TV (Comedy) category.
The movie nominations give a great foresight into who may be included in the Best Picture Oscar category, so keep ‘em peeled on who wins what when the gongs for the PGAs are dished out »
