The 28th annual Producerd Guild Awards were Saturday night, with La La Land taking home the tip prize. This further solidifies its frontrunner status as the favorite to win Best Picture. Last year, The Big Short won the PGA and not the Oscar, but 19 of last 27 PGA winners did. Like the Oscars, the Producers Guild uses the preferential voting ballot system. A movie has to be be loved by many to win a preferential vote and La La Land has it. Every time I think that Moonlight is more universally loved, I am proven wrong. I may still predict Moonlight for win, but if you want to win your Oscar pool, go with La La Land.
Full list of PGA winners:
Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures
La La Land
Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures
