2011 Producers Guild of America Award Winners

Seems that Oscar race could be interesting after all -IF trend continues- as last night (well, not long ago) the first actual Academy voters gave the top award to The King Speech! News are all over but not yet at the site. Winners are in *BLUE.


Today the Producers Guild of America announced the complete list of nominees and here it is.

The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures

127 Hours, Danny Boyle
Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky
Inception, Christopher Nolan
The Fighter, David O. Russell
The Kids Are All Right, Lisa Cholodenko
*The King’s Speech, Tom Hooper
The Social Network, David Fincher
The Town, Ben Affleck
Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich
True Grit, Joel and Ethan Coen

The Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures
Despicable Me, Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud
How To Train Your Dragon, Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders
*Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich

As previously announced these are the nominees for the documentaries.

The Award for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Pictures
Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, Alex Gibney
Earth Made of Glass, Deborah Scranton
Inside Job, Charles Ferguson
Smash His Camera, Leon Gast
The Tillman Story, Amir Bar-Lev
*Waiting for Superman, Davis Guggenheim

Above names are directors and to check the list with the producers names plus TV categories go here. Winners will be announced on Saturday, January 22, 2011.

With the announcement of the feature films we get our first idea of how the Best Picture nominees could look at the Oscar, as members of the guild are also Academy voters and even if there are many other Academy members I tend to believe that not much will change as the ten nominated films are the same as the ones that everyone has been speculating will get nominated at Oscar. By the end of the month we will learn the winner and things could get a bit more interesting, but my crystal ball tells me that winner will be one of the following: The Social Network, The King’s Speech or True Grit.
